Getting Grip on Singleness and Dating

Posted in MCC resources tagged at 10:23 PM by alexlozada

Luke Erickson continued MCC’s “Love Handles” series with this weekend’s message, “Getting a Grip on Dating and Singleness.” (message-based study guide and Bible.com-YouVersion Event notes) Because this series focuses on specific types of relationships each week, people might think that certain weekend messages don’t have much value for them. Luke explains how this week’s message is useful to anyone:

I know we’re not all single or dating… I’m married. A lot of us are. But interestingly, that number is becoming less and less as, now, right about half of adults in our country are single. So this is important to be talking about. And if you were thinking that you’re in the half who are married so the message doesn’t apply to me, well, it doesn’t matter who you are, love-handles-dashboardall of us will spend a significant portion of our lives being single—on the front end of life for sure, and we don’t know about the middle and the back end of life, most of us. And all of us, even if we’re not single, have influence on someone who is. Kids or grandkids navigating the dating world in a way that’s a lot different from the way it was when you were that age. Or we have friends who are single again, trying to get reoriented after a divorce or the death of a spouse. So I guess the first point is that even if it’s been awhile since we’ve sat down at a table for two across from someone we were trying to impress—or get rid of—God’s word is relevant to all of us today
