Is the church too focussed on marriage? How can we care for Christian singles?
I am interested in your thoughts on this. I have never been a single Christian you know. I have been in a relationship from the day of my conversion. But I have many single Christian friends who I care deeply for. And I am conscious of how single status often translates into second class social status in evangelical circles. Amongst other things I think we need to reflect critically on our teaching about marriage and singleness.
It's crazy you know, in the Catholic church singleness is the accepted norm for leadership, in the Protestant church marriage is the accepted norm for leadership. You would think both should be acceptable, given there were both married and single apostles.
