Every year, Louisiana Family Forum recognizes our state’s longest married couples as a way of honoring the institution of marriage and those men and women who have faithfully committed to each other. February is almost here, which means we’ve opened nominations and will be accepting them for the next week, until February 3rd.
If you know a couple who has been married for 70+ years, we would like to know their story! Please click here to nominate your ‘contestants’ for induction into the Louisiana Marriage Hall of Fame, and consideration for the title of Louisiana’s Longest Married Couple.
If you’re married and have goals to join the Louisiana Marriage Hall of Fame, we encourage you to consider a C4C (Created4Connection) marriage workshop this year. The workshop is hosted by LFF friends Pete & Dee Adams. The February 5-6 event will be hosted at the Chapel at Seigen in Baton Rouge, but is limited to 50% capacity in order to comply with COVID restrictions. As of now, they still have a few spots available.
You can click here for more information on how to attend. They also have workshops planned for April, August, and October.
And in keeping with the topic of marriage, LFF is monitoring a plethora of executive orders which are likely to impact the institution of marriage, the churches and pastors who solemnize them, and other family-related policy changes that are aimed at redesigning God’s plan for humanity. Here’s a list of the orders we’re watching this week.
If you want to be kept up to date on the latest, we encourage you to follow our Facebook page for daily updates on the issues that affect Louisiana families.
Pastor John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in California issued a blistering warning for those, including President Biden, who have invoked the name of God, and placed their hands on the Bible to take an oath: “you better be careful when you place your hand on (things of) God.
It was also a reminder for Christians – that we are to be in the world but not of the world. It’s worth a watch.
Today, LFF is remembering the one year anniversary of Dr. Francis Rinaudo's graduation to Heaven.
“Doc” was an unassuming fellow from the small town of St. Francisville, but he had a giant heart. That was never more evident than when he was discussing his three great passions: his faith in Christ, his love for family, and his passionate pro-life convictions. To put it simply ..."he cared!” On many occasions, that care was evident...whether in testimony before a Capitol committee, or simply sitting at a restaurant where he would weep as he discussed his big three: faith, family and life.
LFF maintains the Dr. Francis Rinaudo Memorial Pro-Life Fund, in honor of Doc's legacy and passion for his pro-life convictions. We remember him and his family today, and remain grateful for his lasting impact on our state and in our culture.
