Is it true that "good fences make good neighbors," then perhaps we ought to be looking at the fences in our homes. In this book Gerald and Marlene Kaufman and their two daughters, Anne and Nina describe the value of choosing limits, symbolized by fences, within marriage and family. The limits we set on sexuality, time, language, and responses to conflict are maintained best by our commitments to a higher purpose for our marriage; one that serves God, our churches, and our communities as well as ourselves and our family. Within a set of chosen boundaries, we ironically become free. What kind of fence best serves the purpose of freedom? Imagine three kinds of fences; a wall, a picket fence, and a boxwood border.
At times our world seems to be spinning out of control. Marriages are disintegrating. Many children need medication to help them through the school day. A growing number of adults and youth are searching for something that is missing in their lives.
Freedom and wholeness come when we choose to live within boundaries. We seek compassionate limits drawn by the civil society and the church. We need boundaries that connect to our covenant with God. These help us in our relationships with each other and speak to our long-term good.
The issue is not whether to have fences; it's which fences, where to place them, and who should put them up. This book is a celebration of contained freedom.
