They receive disparaging comments, questions of sexual orientation, and the like.A third circumstance that gives me this opportunity today is that I am technically still single.Over the years of my singleness, I have grown to appreciate the unique blessings and challenges of adult Christian singleness.These challenges are often overlooked in the church and I have one last chance to write about them as an insider, before I become one of those married pastors telling singles how they should feel.The first circumstance that makes my marriage atypical is my age. If the national average age for a man’s first marriage is 28, this means I’ve had more time than average to think about these things.

Assume it won’t be and enjoy this year to the fullest.
The church desperately needs the balance of Scripture.
