The Lost Art of Friendship

Sep 12 2021 • Emily Morrison, Greg Boyd, Guest Panelists, Shawna Boren

Generations before us have prized intimate friendships and cultivated the art of making and keeping friends. So, in today’s age where “friend” is a noun and a verb, you’d think we would all be expert friends! But many of us struggle with friendship, especially in the loneliness the pandemic has brought. We want to reclaim this lost art by discovering what Jesus has to say about friends. We’ll take a look at what real friendship looks like, and discover the beauty and power of “spiritual friendships” that center around mutual growth in Jesus.

Sermons in this series:


What Happened to Spiritual Friendship?

• Greg Boyd

Historically, intimate friendship was valued in the church and in the broader culture. This sermon provides a basic overview of why spiritual friendship is so important and why we need to build it into our lives today.

Topics: Community, Love


Friendship With God

• Greg Boyd

God has invited us to be his friends, but what does that actually mean? And how is being God’s friend actually a more mature relationship than being his servant? This sermon addresses these questions and challenges our common notions of friendship with God.

Topics: Grace, Relationships

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
