The AK47 Podcast Season 1: Episode 37

I interviewed Raymond Blaine Stewart (Ph.D candidate in philosophy at the University of Oklahoma) on the topic of singleness in the church, the gift of singleness, what 1 Corinthians 7 teaches about singleness, and how churches can effectively minister to the single people in its congregation.  Raymond's audio sounds a bit distant in the beginning, but it gets better after a few minutes, so don't worry.
