Dr. Jim discusses being single for the Christmas holidays, and how to cope if in that situation.
Christmas and the holidays should be times of great joy – right? The reality is that many singles wrestle with a LOT of emotions around the holidays seasons.
I think sometimes many of us think only of North America (the United States in particular) when thinking of predominantly “Christian” countries. Of course, there are millions of Christian singles across the globe. I’m guessing if you live in a country where Christianity is less common, it would be even more difficult to find that special someone who also shares your Christian faith and values. We encourage those from non-North American countries to try ChristianCafe.com out as well. So, aside from the US and Canada, where are our other members from?

Pastor Jim responds to the question about interdenominational dating.
» Should I date a Christian outside my own denomination?
I know of no scriptural reference that says you should not date someone outside of your own denomination. However, I do suggest that there are practical considerations that you should think about and let them guide you.
You’ve done the back and forth online with someone you’re interested in. Now it’s time to meet in person – whether for coffee, a drink, dinner, mini-golf or whatever else. You have a coupon for this fine establishment you want to take your date to. Is it OK to use that coupon on a date? Would your date feel that you’re cheap – or would she think you’re just really good with your money?
Know a single Christian
and are having trouble thinking of a great gift
for them? Something that is different and unique – something they aren’t likely to get from anyone else? A gift that can actually help them in their life journey?
Ok, how about introducing them to thousands and thousands of other singles who share their same Christian beliefs and values? Yep, you can do that.
