The Five Love Languages:
Gentlemen, you are invited to an evening of hearty food for the body and for the soul. On Tuesday, May 8, we’ll gather to consider the ideas of Gary Chapman in his book The 5 Love Languages.
It is a cliche that many couples suffer from a failure to communicate, leaving frustrated partners wondering “Why doesn’t she get what I’m saying?” or “What does he really want?”. Gary Chapman proposes that people have different ways of expressing themselves and understanding their partners, that is, they have different love languages. The keys to a fostering a healthy relationship are for the partners to know each other’s love language and how to use it.
According to Chapman, the five love languages are: words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. By knowing and using your partner’s love language, you should be able to shift from feeling ignored to feeling understood, and from arguing to working together.
You are encouraged to read the book before we meet, but if you prefer, you can find summaries of the love-languages concept on the web, including at the source website.
Dinner. Discussion. Deeper Insight
The Men’s Supper club is where we gather once a month for some supper and self-reflection. We tackle a full plate and an important piece of writing that touches on Christian themes. Over the recent months, we have been considering: What does it mean to be a Christian man in a post-Harvey Weinstein world?
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, to help us plan for the dinner.
