Is choosing loneliness, to be alone, the “safe” option?

It’s a question that the show “Apartment Therapy” explores. But there’s a strange quirk – almost all people live alone: and they see this as the “self-crafted” pinnacle of their lives.

More people are alone now than ever before. One-seventh of all Americans live by themselves. The UK has similar numbers. This is a global Western phenomenon though – a more accurate read is Westerners prefer to live alone more.

This runs parallel with an increasingly fractured society in the global West: many have traded their real communities for their online ones. Society has to be built on a network – including ones that we disagree with.

Even Christians are now struggling to sit in fellowship with one another, with social circles built upon sectarian lines. The late great pastor and author Tim Keller was aware of this: his final words in writing were in a book called Forgive: Why Should I, and How Can I? He saw the urgent need for our culture to embrace forgiveness, community, and a sense of being together.

Christians have the tools to demonstrate true community to our world: true trust, and true relationship. It’s these qualities that the world needs now, more than ever.

What is Delorean Philosophy?

Where are we going as a society? And will you be happy when we get there? Steve McAlpine is here to help you answer those questions.

If a Delorean time machine pulled up in front of your house – Back To The Future style – and someone offered to show you what the future would be like, would you be content with what you found? And if not, what could you do to change it? Thinking this through is what Steve McAlpine calls Delorean Philosophy.

Steve McAlpine is a well-known social commentator, respected theologian and popular author. Each week, he takes a crucial trend or event that’s playing out in society now and asks, “Where is this taking us?”

Rather than just pontificating, Steve then provides practical steps listeners can take if they want to change the future. That’s Delorean Philosophy.
