Our world, and indeed our church, seem to be built around a "e;couples culture"e;. From popular music to supermarket offers to "e;family"e; events, being single can mean being the odd one out. Kate Wharton considers the challenges facing singles, addressing the issues of being complete without an "e;other half"e;, staying pure, being single again after divorce or bereavement, and dealing with pressures from both church and society. Kate reminds us that Jesus comes to bring "e;life to the full"e;, whatever our marital status. "e;When we are sold out for God,"e; she says, "e;then life will be the very best that it can be - whether married or single, with children or without - because we will be on our way to becoming who we were created to be."e; Kate shows us how we can be single and whole.
