Are People Feeling Lonely in Church?

Are you lonely? If you are, you are not alone. Rev Dr Tan Soo Inn, a panellist at the upcoming The Silent Pandemic: Loneliness in the Churches seminar, writes about the danger of loneliness found in today’s churches.

Rev Tan cites studies of urban church worshippers who found friendly believers in churches but not friends. This is coupled with the negative effect of loneliness being like that of obesity and smoking. Churches are gospel communities of those reconciled to God and to fellow man. How then do churches get their “relational act together” in addressing the issue of loneliness?

Soo Inn suggests three ways to address the issue of loneliness in the church: through theology, power, and platforms. Read more about it in his article here. Better yet, register for and attend the above seminar (for free, see below) here.
