This week on “The Boundless Show”
How do you build friendships and form community?
Roundtable: Single and Over 30
Being single in your 20s can feel like an adventure, but what about in your 30s and beyond? It doesn’t help that society isn’t always accepting of your single status. Since several of you asked for it, we put together a panel of folks who understand what it’s like to be in their 30s or 40s and unmarried. We talk about the unique challenges of extended singleness, answering the dreaded “why aren’t you married?” question, staying sexually pure, and being content.

Chris Marlow, author of “Doing Good Is Simple,” offers practical ways to get started with opportunities right in front of you, and shares how a gas station and a lemonade stand taught him that it’s easier than you think.
