Sampler of Singles not Served Well by Churches

Mark is widowed. Too young for the Senior Saints but alone none the less. He doesn’t have peers in his congregation. People feel sorry for him but “he needs to get on with life”. Incidentally, he married his high school sweetheart and held her hand through 8 years of cancer treatment. Why don’t we have a budget in place or a plan for people like him?

Tommy is mentally “challenged” and doesn’t always act correctly in church. Most churches don’t budget or plan for people like Tommy so many handicapped people don’t attend church…also, Tommy will probably never marry so he is left out of most couple activities.

Susan never married. Never found the right guy (or the wrong one). Saved herself for marriage and now is alone in her 50s. She states that she has learned to sit alone both in restaurants and at church but would prefer “company”. Why doesn’t the church budget or plan for Susan and others like her? Do the ministers and elders think she likes all this solitude?

Jane never married. Never found the right guy (or the wrong one). Saved herself for marriage and now is alone in her 50s. She states that she has learned to sit alone both in restaurants and at church but would prefer "company". Why doesn't the church budget or plan for Jane<br /><br /><br />
