The Necessity of Friendship -- Linda Kline
Thu, April 27, 2017, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM CDT
Do you have any genuine friends? Life in ministry is people-intensive. The last thing those of us in leadership may want to do is initiate outside relationships. The average pastor has many, many acquaintances, but few if any true and reciprocal friendships. We can be inundated with people, yet desperately lonely. One of the common denominators we see in ministry failure is the lack of any true buddies. It may sound spiritual to rely on God and God alone, but it’s not healthy for the long haul. Friendship is not optional. It is not a “women’s thing”. It is not “touchy-feely” fluff. It’s not merely knowing ministry colleagues. It may require some work, but life-giving friendship is possible, freeing, and necessary. Join us as we discuss the inestimable value of friendship.
