One of the fastest growing demographics in churches is the blended family. These are families in which either one or both spouses are divorced and remarried. They may or may not have children. One of my peers when I was in seminary suggested a class on how to minister to blended families. His first wife left him after he accepted Jesus as his savior and refused any further contact with him. He ended up marrying a woman who had the same thing happen to her. She brought a child into the marriage with them. To quote him, "TV and the world want to portray the blended family as they Brady Bunch. It's not. It's more like Desert Storm." The class was launched and I signed up. What I realized while taking this class is that there is little to no ministry designed to help blended families survive their marriages. A nuclear family is challenging enough. A blended family adds an entirely new dimension of problems. We often have classes developed for newly weds and new parents and so forth in our churches. We jump at the opportunity to minister to divorced people. But, it seems like when they remarry, we drop our ministry to them and hope they can cope. What do you think churches should be doing to encourage these families to stay together?
