 +====== Appreciating Singleness ~ February 2020 ======
 +==== A Biblical Theology of Singleness ====
 +**Facilitator:​ Beth Eckstein**
 +===== Description:​ =====
 +Singles make a significant percentage of the missionary workforce. Although Paul and Jesus seem to make it clear that there are definite advantages to being single for the sake of the kingdom of God, Scripture also puts a high value on marriage and families. This session will look at what the Bible says about the importance and blessing of bearing offspring, and how singles can participate in the blessing. The development of the theme of offspring will be traced throughout the Scriptures, concluding with how singles uniquely point to the realities of the age to come.
 +===== Objectives: =====
 +  - To understand what the Scriptures say about offspring under both the old and new covenants.
 +  - To appreciate how singles can fully participate in the blessings that were reserved for married people in the Old Testament.
 +  - To learn how we can better support and value our single missionary colleagues.
