keeping and then…

with the breath of kindness

blow the rest away.”

Friends are not optional;

  • they’re essential.
  • Friends are not automatic;
  • they must be cultivated.
  • Friends are not neutral;
  • they impact our lives.
  • Friendships come in varying degrees,
  • some of who play more
  • significant roles in our life
  • than others.
  • --Chuck Swindoll
slide40

“Friendship is every bit as significant

as prayer and fasting.

Like the sacramental use

of water and bread and wine,

friendship takes what’s common

in human experience

and turns it into something holy.”

--Eugene Peterson
