Singleness
Show Notes

In this episode Charley shares some of her experience's as a thirty something singleton.

We talk about how the Christian's view of singleness as a gift from God is different from that of the world's and maybe different from our heart's.

Then we talk about some of the Myths of Singleness that Sam Allberry highlight's in his book '7 Myths of Singleness.'

We think about how Churches and Friends can best look out for those who are single before ending with a section about how to do singleness well.

Note: This episode is not addressing the issue of dating.

Verse of the Episode;
1 Corinthians 732-35

32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.
