A popular song that brings tears to many eyes for various reasons. But true friendship is a gift from God, a spiritual discipline even. You see community is not a one way street, but when you give you find you get more in return. And we aren’t doing this for that reason, that is just the effect.  To know/be known, love/be loved are God given yearnings. However, in our day and time we often find community the most convenient way, we join one every week for an hour or so on this magical device.  This is where the 2 way street analogy comes in, I have to pick up the phone, stop by, make plans etc. and kick myself for thinking that I am too busy.


I want to thank my friend and fellow Pastor, Maggie Mraz for reminding me that Michael W. Smith was indeed correct!
