My friend, Dan, sent me this link to an article on singleness and the church, and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it with you!
I can't tell you how many times I've been told by my married friends that, "I want you to get married because I just want you to be happy." Well intentioned, but a bit sad. Do I look miserable? I'm not. I don't feel pitiful most of the time, but my relationship status in most church settings has been seen as "less than," undesirable, or a worst case scenario as temporary.
