The Never Married: Single in the Church – Jacob Rhodes and Dr. David Maxwell

Tangible: Theology Learned and Lived” explores the ways in which theology permeates all aspects of life. Through conversations with our faculty, we will challenge you to deepen your theology and live out your faith in Christ. We’ll talk with a variety of professors on a variety of topics – something different in every episode, but all pointing to the intersection of faith and daily life. It’s tangible: theology learned and lived.

In this episode STM student Jacob Rhodes and Dr. David Maxwell discuss the ways in which our vocabulary and attitude towards unmarried adults influences their perception of value. Rhodes recently spoke on the topic at the 2023 Theological Symposium at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis in his sectional “The Never Married: Developing a Vocabulary for and about Singleness”. Over half the population now is single…How does [the church] actually talk about singleness? – Jacob Rhodes
