Life as a single mission worker can be a vibrant and thrilling experience. Too often though we can experience more of the loneliness and vulnerability of being single. It’s a bit like flying by yourself: challenging and a little bit risky, but great fun.
As we’ve remarked before in previous blogs about being a single mission worker, it can be only too easy for us to become lonely and isolated, and start to focus our attention on the one thing we haven’t got (a partner), and start to think that if only we could get one, everything in our lives would be great. When we think about it sensibly, we realise that one frail, selfish, fallible human being can’t possibly be the answer to all our problems, and it’s actually unfair to place such an expectation on one human being.
So where do we find the answer? Well it’s in God of course, and if there’s one thing we enjoy doing at Syzygy, it’s pointing people in God’s direction to get the answer to all their needs. And that’s what we’ll be doing in Gloucester on 22nd April. We’ve teamed up with Redcliffe College to bring you a day of discussing the theology of singleness, the practicalities of living a single lifestyle on the mission field, and how we can be completely fulfilled as singles by finding our identity in Christ.
