Pastor Eugene goes on to give more tips and suggestions on dating and courtship in this fourth part of his Theology of Singlehood series.

Pastor Eugene continues spelling out a theology of singlehood and states that the primary question as to whether one should remain single or get married is, what will allow me to serve Christ better with integrity? For some, it is not an issue to remain single and to use the freedom that it provides to serve the Lord in ways that would be more difficult for married couples. For others, the God-given sexual desires of life are such that the covenant of marriage provides an outlet for that. Marriage also comes with a unique kinds of partnership and support that many who are single will never know. Both choices are viable and Biblical ways of living an authentic Christian life.

Pastor Eugene opens the second section of Quest's Relationship Series by talking about a theology of singlehood. Such a theology begins with the idea that we are created for relationship - both relationship with God and relationship with other people. He goes on to say that although the gift of singlehood is referred to as a "gift," we must not get the idea that it is a better gift than the gift of marriage - they're both biblical.

The first half of Quest's Relationship Sermon Series was about our relationship with God. In this message, Pastor Eugene introduces us into the second half of the Relationship Series - our relationships with one another. As he looks at the second chapter of Genesis, he points out that our longing for relationship is not a product of the fall, rather it is a part of the way that God designed us - we are created for community.

In this Christmas Homily, Pastor DeAnza talks about the birth story as a story of hope - a hope that seems to be swallowed up by current crises (war and the economy) - but nevertheless, a hope that continues to speak to us today.
