My name is Justin – Thanks for stopping by.
So here is the story. Nearly 10 year ago I had a conversation with some of my pastors about singleness. I was in my late 30’s and single. I had started to see some things differently and I had seen how the church had failed singles. They listened and liked what I had to say. The next singles event they had they invited me to help lead it. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
People were asking me for resources and I had none. Another pastor friend of mine suggested, more like implored me, to write about it. So this blog as born.
As I wrote I also researched. What started out as a few ideas grew into a lot more. Over the years I’ve gotten to speak, lead retreats and of course had many discussions here. For 8 years I’ve written exclusively about singleness and the church here at the blog. Nearly 250 posts.
In the last year (2020) I’ve started writing about more than singleness. I feel as if I’ve said a lot about singleness and I’ll still write some about that. I was single until I was 41 and it is very important. All of the posts will be here. But I also feel that we live in a crucial time in the American church and for men. I want to help us think about many things.
This blog has been and will continue to be open to all to read. But it is written by a man with men in mind. I don’t claim to speak from any other perspective. I’ve been a man, now both single and married, in full time ministry for two decades and at times I’ve been accused of having wisdom worth sharing. I hope you’ll find some of that here. If not – feel free to disagree, but keep it civil.
Thanks for visiting and reading.
