On Singleness

My friend and colleague, Rev. Dr. Chuck DeGroat, of the City Church of San Francisco, posted this on his blog, The New Exodus. He calls it "The Missional Position: Myths and Musings on Being Single." We were discussing singleness in an Old First small group last night, and how most of us at Old First (certainly not all of us) participate as "singles," even when we're married, while most churches seem to regard "married couples" as the norm.

Thanks for this link - as a 'single' I found his musings very helpful! The church isn't often a 'welcoming' place for singles - even though there are more of us around than we think!! In the UK there is a lot of talk about 'church family' but I find this very unhelpful.

I will do some musing of my own I think!
