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

May 24, 2011 (flowers from a friend)

flowers from a friend

“Today friendship has fallen on hard times.
Few men have good friends, much less deep friendships.
Individualism, autonomy, privatization,
and isolation are culturally cachet,
but deep, devoted, vulnerable friendship is not.
This is a great tragedy for self, family, and the Church,
because it is in relationships that we develop
into what God wants us to be…
Friendships…are there to be made
if we value them as we ought –
and if we practice some simple disciplines of friendship.”
- Kent Hughes
