Encouragement being a single Christain in today's secular world

Christian singles coupleWhy is it that single Christians find it so hard to meet like-minded people even at church? Single Christians face a particular challenge in todays busy and franetic world that focuses in an unhealthy way on beauty, perfection, quality of life, attainment of wealth and social status and the like over inner beauty and the more transcedent qualities such as love, giving and sacrifice.

These pressures are particularly accute for modern Christians, and we all know them and respond to them in different ways. For some people (myself included) the Christian walsk is a tough one - one which sometimes I would rather not walk. It seems far simpler and easier to take the world has to offer and go with the flow.

Being single is just another social stigma that we have to deal with and as Christians, one would expect that being in the church would make things a lot easier in terms of meeting new friends and people that might be a potential match - but in reality it can for some people in more remote situations - out of town or in smaller towns and viallages seem almost impossible to meet new people in Church.

It's not always because they don't have the guts to ask - it's sometime due to the 'goldfish bowl effect' - ie gossip on all sides (guys and girls) that always seems to accompany church relationships.

In recent years - probably since the late 90's Christian singles have thankfully had more genuine resources to help them out and although Christians are finally getting a lookin, it's been slow getting the singles issue sorted out and the church it would seem are relived and leaving it to the internet Poople.
