Description

This talk explores the Christian understanding of singleness, its place in the Church, and its relation to marriage, family life, and sexuality. We see its unique purpose in and out of the body of Christ. Christian singleness is a specific witness to the presence of the kingdom and the coming Christ, putting many contemporary idols into question. In the context of European churches, the value of singleness needs to be rediscovered as an honoured lifestyle and calling open both to those who prefer single life and to those who may discover it as their calling in the midst of life’s various challenges.
