Ian & Mike
In the Naked Truth Relationships Podcast, christians with different relationship statuses and histories chat about what it’s really like in church when it comes to dating, singleness, marriage and everything in between. Each discussion is led by André, who always asks his 2 guests 3 main questions: What’s your experience of this stuff in a christian context? How has the christian community helped or hindered? What’s the main thing that needs to change?
Being single and being in church in your 40s and 50s isn’t really talked about too much, and people are single at this age for many different reasons. In this episode, we’re chatting to Ian, who has been single his whole life with the exception of one short relationship, and Mike, who was married for twenty-five years but is now divorced and has been single again for five years. Their experience of singleness, especially as people involved in leading churches and pastoral ministries, brings a unique voice and understanding to issues around singleness, being single at a later stage of life, and how their situations have impacted their faith.
