How do we create a better place within the church for people who are single? How do we change the attitude that single people need to be fixed up with someone?
For many people, singleness brings pressures, concerns, and fears about the future. The body of Christ needs to step into potential loneliness with vital and life-giving, Christ-centered community. Single people are not people who need to be fixed or fixed up. And all people need to know that they have a vital place in the family of God. One way to do this is to make fellowship in the home a high priority, to have regular, weekly time together, to include each other in holidays, and to remember that if we call ourselves a family of God, we need to act like a family.
