I have already shared how I never was on the courting bandwagon. I never read I Kissed Dating Goodbye. I never taught it in a youth ministry context. I don’t have a background in this belief to offer a comparative perspective to brave dating.
Some of you do. Hence I pass on this article to give you that comparative perspective.
“I thought we were way past the “Courtship vs. Dating” debates.
“I thought that was old news, that we’d laid to rest the I Kissed Dating Goodbye era and moved on to new topics.
“But apparently, I was wrong. Maybe you’ve noticed, but the Courtship movement has recently received some major attention from both national television and recent entertainment. To be honest, I have no problem with Courtship. I am not putting down the concept of courtship, and I never will. The truth is, different personalities need different approaches to relationships. And for some people, Courtship is what works!
