This Sunday, March 3, we’ll explore the friendship of God in the final lesson in our series, Experiencing God’s Beauty. While friendship is one of the most important and powerful gifts on earth, it can prove to be elusive. Studies show only about half of our perceived friendships are mutual. Life’s sweetest and most sorrowful moments often involve friends.
At its core, Christianity is a deep relationship with God, an intimate encounter with the One who is the ultimate, unfailing, forever friend. This Sunday we’ll focus on a really significant moment in Jesus’ life, when he told his closest disciples that he regarded them not just as his followers, but his friends. He had unconditionally loved them, disclosed himself thoroughly to them, and he was about to lay down his life for them. That’s what friends do. Not only will his example inspire us, but knowing him as our supreme friend will empower us to be the kind of friend we all long for and need. Join us this Sunday to learn more and, while you’re at it, bring a friend with you! Invite on Facebook.
