In the 1980s filmmaker John Hughes made movies like Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles exploring teen relationships. In the film Some Kind of Wonderful, character Amanda Jones says, "I'd rather be with someone for the wrong reasons then alone for the right." Many people have this fear of being alone.
In this video Lisa Bishop, Park Community Church's Director of Women's Small Groups, talks about singleness: "What is it about being single that can literally strike fear in the hearts of men and women. I think it's because we were designed to be in relationship."
Lisa answers three questions about singleness:
- "What's wrong with me?"
- "I still have this longing for marriage. What do I do with it?"
- "Where is God in all this?"
