As a current member of a bishopric, I would want to hear from you. Just remember it cannot be changed overnight. Also remember that you will be part of the solution. This can be solved by individual members and the bishopric. We would start on Ward Council level and work down through the priesthood and RS to make it better....but start with the bishopric.

As a former member of a singles ward I can sympathize with your frustration. This is a huge part of the reason (imho) that the church does not fully embrace having singles wards everywhere. When I quit worrying about my unmarried status and settled into a family ward my life took a major change for the better. I'm divorced now with a daughter who is not a member. Serving in this ward for the last 10 years has been the best time of my life. Give it some thought. It's not easy making the jump and some family wards are easier than others....but that's where we belong. Singles can contribute so much .... and members of all wards are slowly starting to figure that one out.

Good luck and good hunting.

Potsdam, 00

Earthquakes and storms are all happening around the world, everyday we get news of the worse.
Media is calling demandful expectations, and who is to blame ?

We cannot force silence, we cannot change people overnight.

But what we do through out life passes our awareness, we are so occupied.
In church we want to unload stress and relax for the day.

What we hear and what we see is not what we should, we are missing on the spiritual part, not because of earthquakes or loud neigbors, but because we have not yet learned about our inner peace and focus on devine meanings that would shut off the rest.
