The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating by Andy Stanley
What if the whole dating process were reversed? What if it was more about “becoming” the right person instead of being consumed with “finding” the right person?
Andy Stanley of North Point Community Church challenges single adults in his new series, “The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating.” The Single Adult Ministry at Hope Community Church featured the first message in this series, “The Right Person Myth” on July 13 and packed in the Raleigh Campus Chapel with over 170 attendees. The catch phrase of the night was “Are you the person you are looking for is looking for?” featuring Stanley on DVD followed by discussion time.
Single adults were challenged to take seriously the qualities found in the “love chapter” of 1 Corinthians 13. Noting that single adults have the best chance for relational success if they “become” the right person first, Stanley encouraged listeners to move beyond just emotion or chemistry in the dating process and into the realm of passionately being the person God wants us all to be. It was a night filled with some of the most practical and compelling advice ever heard on the topic of dating. As Andy Stanley has said, “If you don’t want a marriage like the majority of marriages, then stop dating like the majority of daters.”
