We know the value of friendship, we’d all agree with that—yet studies continually show increasing rates of loneliness and isolation in our culture.
There are even companies today that allow you to “rent a friend,” to pay for a companion to keep you company.
While most people have friends, you could argue that few of us know true friendship. That we walk around largely unknown.
Drew Hunter says we don’t think much about this topic because we don’t think we need to, and as a result, friendship is one of the most familiar yet forgotten relationships of our day.
A graduate of the Moody Bible Institute and the Wheaton College Graduate School, Drew is the teaching pastor at Zionsville Fellowship in Indiana. He is the author of the book: “Made for Friendship: The Relationship That Halves Our Sorrows and Doubles Our Joys.”
In it, he explores biblical insights and real-world examples that provide a picture of what true friendship really looks like. He shows us how to cultivate relationships that go deeper than surface-level tastes and shared interests. And he encourages us with the hope of a deep friendship with God.
