If you would like a recommendation for what season you’re in, send me an email at [email protected] I’d be glad to help point you in the right direction. My church does one called “Love Games” each year and personally, I love it! One of my favorite classes as a Communication Studies major back in college was a Christian Relationships class where various aspects of relationships—friendship, singleness, dating, marriage, family, etc.—were addressed from three perspectives: psychology, theology, and communication theory.In honor of it being February, I figured I’d round up some of my favorite sermon series and podcasts on Christian dating and relationships that I’ve listened to and learned from over the years—in hopes they can be a helpful resource to you too.Each of the ones I’ve listed below cover several aspects of relationships, because each include several sermons or episodes.Listen to #Relationship Goals by Transformation Church For this one, it’s less of one specific thing I’ve taken from it and more so that I’ve just overall really enjoyed listening to the podcast because it feels like a refreshing conversation with friends who just I loved how this series places a strong emphasis on asking yourself whether you are “becoming the person that the person you’re looking for is looking for.” It’s easy to have a standard of what we want in a partner, but perhaps an even more consequential pursuit to make sure we ourselves are also growing into people with the same type of character we are looking for in others.Listen to The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating by North Point Community Church Let me know what you think if you listen to any of these sermon series or podcasts—I’d love to hear your thoughts!
Knowing your true identity will affect your relationships.
Listen to Loveology Series by Bridgetown Church One of my favorite parts of this podcast is when Mike Erre unpacks a passage in Song of Solomon to give us a guideline of three things to look for in a spouse.
I found it to be very validating as to what’s important and to this day, it’s shaped my mindset of what it is I’m looking for.
God created us with romantic desires and He wants to fulfill those in the correct way – the best and most satisfying way.
Trying to do romance our own way causes tons of problems.
