I don't know about you, but the constant barrage of negativity and gloomy reports in the news tends to beat me down. Polls show only a paltry 21% of American voters believe we're headed in the right direction.

C.S. Lewis once wrote: "Every time you make a choice you are turning the central part of you … into something a little different from what it was before.

But because we singles don't have the built-in fellowship that accompanies marriage, we live with a constant awareness of our dependence on the body of Christ. We can't follow Jesus solitarily. We need other believers to open their lives to us beyond Sunday mornings and view us as blood-bought family members.
However, I do think there is something to say for single Christians possessing a healthy sense of independence. more >>
