Overview

Open Forums are specifically designed for skeptics or those wrestling with the claims of Christianity. Each Open Forum included a brief concert by guest artists followed by a talk and open mic Q&A with Timothy Keller. This audio recording includes the talk only.

Message Summary

If we look at love and marriage like we do jazz and blues music, we see a mix of views. Some are real and a bit unclear, others are too emotional. The way we think about marriage law has been shaped a lot by religious beliefs, especially those of Catholic and Protestant faiths. It’s also key to remember that having strong, lasting relationships is good for our society, even though things have changed a lot with the sexual revolution. Just like jazz, marriage is about finding the right mix of freedom and rules. It’s also about the power of promises. Promises can change us, help us grow, and keep us true to who we are.
