The wife of Robert McQuilken, the former President of Columbia college and seminary, was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers. At the time, his career as a college and seminary president and sought after speaker was thriving. What should he do? How could he balance the two loves of his life? For a while he tried to maintain two commitments. By 1990 he knew a choice must to be made. He made a choice that few man have the courage to do. He walked away from his thriving public career to be the care taker of his wife until she passed into the hands of Jesus in 2003. What empowered Dr. McQuilken to make such a bold decision? Covenant. He made a covenant promise in his wedding to take care of her for better or worse, richer or for poorer, sickness and in health until death do they part. Robert understood that the covenant love God has for him is the same covenant love he promised to have for her. Join us as we learn about God's rock solid covenant of love and how it enables us to have that same kind of covenant love towards our spouse.

Martin Luther is famous as a reformer and church leader. He is also remembered for a less flattering trait—doubt. At times doubts over God's character led Luther to intense times of depression where he wrote, "For more than a week I was close to the gates of death and hell. I trembled in all my members. Christ was wholly lost. I was shaken by desperation and blasphemy of God." It is comforting to know that even a man of Martin Luther's stature can experience times of doubt over how God can keep his word. In Genesis 15 Abram struggled with doubt when God appeared to have forgotten to keep his promises. In our study we learn how to face times of doubt in God's plans for our life.
