#9 - Singleness & The Importance of Women in Ministry
Lore Ferguson, a Covenant Member, writer, designer and speaker, joins Josh and Matt to discuss singleness, complementarianism and women in ministry. They explain why The Village doesn't have specific ministries for singles or women (or men), and Lore shares how singles can steward their stage of life, seeing it as a gift, for the sake of the gospel.
I understood a more intrinsic truth of the gospel in my singleness than in my marriage: We are all still waiting, regardless of our marital status, for the return of our Groom, for the marriage feast and for an eternal life together.
Being single when you’d rather be married can sometimes be downright lousy. I was single for almost the entirety of my twenties and, although I wasn’t desperate to get married at the time, I remember seasons when I strongly felt discontentedly alone.
