Christianity Today has an article titled, 30 and Single? It’s Your Own Fault


I have long thought that the church has at times done a poor job in really ministering to young adult singles…meaning, we usually have a group for them, but we usually only view that as a stop along the way, and that if people don’t move on and get married, then something is wrong. I have heard from some pastors before that they view young adult ministries as sort of stopping grounds for those young adults who won’t just grow up…so the ministry becomes their place until they grow up and join the rest of the church. That’s my paraphrase of some conversations I have been a part of.

I was married when I was 30 years old. But I never saw my singlessness as a sin.
