The patchwork family is not a today’s phenomenon – it already existed in biblical times!
In many stories the Bible reports of difficulties and failed relationships. Despite all the circumstances, the Bible also says, ” It is not good that the man should be alone” (Genesis 2:18). In doing so, the Bible calls for a good relationship within the family and wants us to engage in good relationships. And to trust in God’s power and blessing.
In spring 2016 the Evangelical Church in Hessen and Nassau (EKHN) uses the claim “Every family is different” to present the manifold possibilities of living together. She wants to point out the special importance of family life and to reconsider their many forms. The animating clip is an amusing, surprising way accompanying a mailing, which was sent to all members of the EKHN in spring of 2016, ie about a million households.
A fundamental goal of the action is to take a look at the diversity of the family, and to discover its possibilities witout playing the one against the other.
