Charisma News Service: Churches Urged to Shed 'Indifference' Toward Singles

Here's the lifecycle of a "normal" mainstream churchgoer:
* Nursery
* Children's Church
* Youth Group
* College/Career
* Married/Young Couples

If you fall out of line somewhere, you're on your own. Or the church's programs, intentionally or not, urge you back onto the main track. Singles aren't given much room to interact and minister, and it's probably even worse on those who are divorced or widowed. Hope this call gets out further than just a good web article.

It's a good article, but I'd prefer not to trivialize it (my opinion) with an acronym to describe what churches need to grab onto:
* S - separate
* I - involving
* N - nurturing
* G - gather
* L - launch
* E - encourage
