Welcome to the Undivided blog.
Back in February 2012, a group of us from the Jesus Fellowship talked about the idea of having a celibates’ blog. Christian celibacy has been a big, big part of our church for many years; indeed the growth of our church would have been impossible to the same degree without committed celibates.
So, what is Christian celibacy? It involves a deliberate choice to be single for Jesus in order to live as single-mindedly as we can for Him (1 Corinthians 7). We choose it ‘for the sake of the kingdom of heaven’ (Matthew 19: 12). We’re following a great tradition … Paul, Francis, Clare and yes, and don’t forget even most importantly, we’re just following after Him – Jesus of course!
There’s around 250 of us in the Jesus Fellowship; we’re not perfect but we are on one of the most exciting journeys this world can offer us … come and read about it on the blog … and yes, please do contribute … just email us with your inspirations: firstname.lastname@example.org
The blog will include many topics: stories about old and contemporary heroes of the celibate life, frequently asked questions about celibacy, poems and inspirational snippets on celibacy and more …
Undividedblog was formally launched at the Jesus Fellowship’s national celibates’ event on Monday 10th September 2012. We’ve got other similar events in the future. Hey, everyone’s welcome – do come along!
