Life lessons from Paintball and Calico Fort!

*”Do unto others….”- Jameson (our 8 year old),  loves shooting others…but learned that getting shot isn’t as much fun!

*a group of believers (babies to grandparents) can share a fellowship of paintball, then break bread at the dinner table. It doesn’t get much better than this…

*camouflage……they still see you….but it makes me look thinner (lol)

*Arts and Crafts fairs can be good…if not too crowded and having a nice mix of …arts and crafts….music….barbeque…old friends…

*Enjoyed spending time with Jodi and Wei Barr and their girls. Jodi was a missionary in China for 7 years. He shared how “on fire” the people are there for learning and seeking God!

*Alot of kids grow up to look just like their parents did!

*The Ft. Deposit Church is multicultural and growing. I’m proud to see it.

     LAUNCH is here for all of you! A place to vent, trips to do things you haven’t done before….

Riverboat trip in Panama City, May 29!!!!!

Why are singles considered second class members of the church?

     This topic popped up on facebook today. So, are singles treated “differently” than married people???

*51% of the population is single.. 4% of church budgets are for singles….

*less than 5% of churches have singles ministries

*there are ZERO paid singles ministers in Churches of Christ in the state of Florida.

*even singles shun the term single and look for alternative tags (read the last BLOG)

*Singles are perceived negatively (read why every church needs a singles ministry).

I have researched single life for MFT studies (Singles in Institutuional Settings: Churches and Hospitals) and know that the unmarried are treated differently.

*Very few church leaders understand and most see singles as “college age”

Solutions are available but take commitment by both singles and church leaders!

What are your thoughts????
