How Gospel Community Can Overcome Loneliness

By Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin

In light of scripture, and with the night of painful isolation all around, I want to argue that we need to reimagine three things: First, how we operate at church; second, how we conceive of family; and third, how we relate to singleness.

Lemonade on the Porch (Part 1): The Gospel in a Post-Christendom Society

They are walking away from both the church and the traditional Christian faith altogether. For them, deconstruction—a dismantling—is the end-point of the process.
