Jesus met a woman beside Jacob’s well, asked her for water, amazed her by knowing the details of her domestic arrangements…and won her faith. “Living together” comes wearing a variety of labels: cohabitation, fornication, living in sin, trial marriage, domestic partnership, immorality, and common law marriage. In this audio talk, Powlison considers how to minister, love, and talk with couples living together outside marriage. He discusses current cultural disconnects that blur the lines between right and wrong, defines terms and highlights a biblical worldview, and offers pastoral approaches as we invite others to change. He draws out four ministry principles from John 4 that guide us as we seek to wisely care for those cohabitating.
