Geoff & Mary Norridge married in 1968. They have been in pastoral ministry for 50 years, planting churches and leading churches.
They make their home in Oxfordshire, UK and have five married sons and thirteen grandchildren.
A major emphasis of their ministry has been the development and leading of family life seminars and pastoral training courses, both in UK and several other countries.
The Family Life God’s Way logo depicts OT Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NIV)
“A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.“
The largest number of strands which can all touch one another simultaneously is three – and it is from this that the strength is derived. (See Marriage God’s Way 7: Furnishing the Rooms–Part 2, pages 10-14 for more details.)
In a Christian marriage, we can think of the three strands of the cord as three relationships:
- Husband <> Wife
- Wife <> God
- Husband <> God
The strength of a marriage is dependent upon these three strands, as they are intertwined to form a strong rope of relationships.
