Start Date: Jan 20, 2021
As humans, we were created to be known by others. We all want to belong and it feels good to know that we have people who care about us. Many of us live much of our lives trying to fit in, attract acceptance, and experience intimacy. We need to get in the practice of paying attention to the craving we have for belonging, listen to it, and learn how to fulfill it. The bottom line is, we need friends! And not only that, we need spiritual friends to help us in our commitment to follow Jesus. But what do spiritual friends do? What practices shape a spiritual friendship? Join us for a 5 week pilot class where we will explore together what it means to be a part of a life-giving spiritual friendship.
