I Have Never by Sharyn Kopf
Have you ever played that game? It’s a great icebreaker. You fill in the blank: I have never ________________________. To keep it simple, just go around the room, having each person share something they’ve never done. Or you can make an actual contest out of it. Everyone gets a predetermined number of tokens—like M&Ms. When someone says, for instance, “I have never been on an airplane,” you have to sacrifice a candy if you have, in fact, been on an airplane.

Q: Should Legally-Separated Adults Be Allowed To Attend Your Single Adult Ministry?
This is one of our questions and sampling of answers in our amazing resource.."Everyone Knows a Single Adult: The FAQs of Single Adult Ministry."
I believe the answer to this question is a definite “No.” Marriage restoration should be sought at all times until it is not achievable. If divorce is inevitable, divorce must be official before the person is technically and legally single. If an affinity were to arise within the singles group between a single adult and a separated (but still married) adult, the church would be facilitating and passively approving/supporting a married person dating someone other than their marriage partner.

Your Action Steps
1. It is not what you know but what you do that is important. If you know you need to start spending less, then start tracking where you are spending so you can cut wasteful spending out. If you know that credit card debt is bad, quit using your credit card. If you know that you need to start saving more, then open an account and start putting money into it! For a lot of us we don’t do anything to change our situation or believe by just praying alone with fix all of our issues. God wants us to pray, but also expects us to take action. Read More
