Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

brings out the best in me

"Now friendship in those days
was a bit different from what it is today;
friends did not have to agree on everything
and often agreed on practically nothing.
They were people with whom you could argue all day
and yet never get irritated or angry at all.
In today's world we seem to have lost
the real meaning of friendship.
If someone disagrees with us,
it is fashionable today to dislike them for it.
This is silly and robs us
of the best kind of friends we could find,
for if we are always agreed with,
we can never really have a serious conversation;
we cannot learn from someone who agrees with what we say."
- Douglas H. Gresham
(from Jack's Life: A Memory of C.S. Lewis)

"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.
Before him I may think aloud."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me."
- Henry Ford
