Megan abruptly became a widow at a young age. She found herself single again and navigating life in unexpected waters. What I truly appreciate about my talk with Megan our conversation about how the body of Christ serves single believers. There are single Christians that are in various stages of their lives. Marriage is not always the goal for every single Christian all the time. The biggest takeaway for me was that we have to do a better job of taking care of our single believers. What do I mean? I'm talking about being intentional about creating a place for them when we are planning ministry events or even just looking out for them and inviting them in our homes or over for dinner. The single Christian community is such a diverse group, but the one thing that our singles need is Christian community.
Church, let's see our singles as individuals; as human beings with full lives, not just babysitters for the married people. Our single communities need to be better served across the board. I am sure that there are many ministries doing this well, but I feel safe in saying that there is room for improvement.
This conversation with Megan is much needed in the body of Christ today. Thank you to Mrs. Megan Schroeder for sharing her story!
