You are one of 1,350 couples who said "yes" to living out your marriage in Christ by attending a MIC Seminar. Scientists tell us that our behavior is contagious. This has ripple effects throughout our network of friends. We influence our friends, who in their turn influence their friends. The effect for good or ill can reach even the friends of our friends’ friends (three degrees of separation from us!).
Our actions influence people we have never met. How many people might that be?
As one scientist pointed out,
if you want to improve the world with your good behavior, math is on your side. For most of us, within three degrees we are connected to more than 1,000 people — all of whom we can theoretically help make healthier, fitter and happier just by our contagious example. “If someone tells you that you can influence 1,000 people,” he said, “it changes your way of seeing the world.”
Now multiply the witness of 1,350 Marriage in Christ couples by 1,000 – that's over 1 million couples! Isn't that amazing?!
