Good piece on singleness here.
One of my best childhood memories is seeing my dad kiss my mom when he walked through the front door, home from work. I heard the latch unlock and waited to see it. A quick peck before we kids got hugs and returned to playing with our toys on the floor or doing our homework at the dining room table. I was young and impressionable, and I could never have guessed how I would grow to become a romantic idealist. I am an INFJ on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, an Enthusiast on the Ennaegram, a Developer on Strengthfinders, and I love love. According to these test results, I have smooth, warm language, easy connection with others, and the ability to eventually realize dreams because of a unique combination of idealism and decisiveness.
But despite my personality type, my desires, and even my prayers, the often-frustrating truth is this: there is nothing I can do to will a husband for myself.
I hope to write more about this later.
Most young adults of every religion, race and ethnicity support access to affordable contraception.
And 56 percent of people ages 18 to 35 say that in some situations, choosing to have abortion “is the most responsible decision that a woman can make.”
Being in my church, it’s hard to believe that Christianity supposedly has a hard time keeping Millennials.
Our entire church is filled with young adults. Millennials open the doors for you. Millennials hand you bulletins and coffee. Millennials usher you into your parking spot. And each week, new millennials are being drawn to our community.
It wouldn’t be accurate to say that my church is “doing it right.” But it is accurate to say that my church is doing it differently—and that’s what’s making the difference.
