…On Friendship

Last Saturday morning is in my 2009 highlight reel. I’ve already decided.

Several of us gathered —all friends—  to help me capture some more footage for music demos.  I have one online but wanted to add a couple facets to the mix that weren’t represented in the first one.  More importantly, we’d be able to worship the Lord together again, something we love to do.

Bernie, Tom, Tom, Phil, Steve, Matt (Out of range: Jon, Harry, Jim, George)

The morning was ambitious but rewarding.  We started from square one at about 8:30, and three hours later called it a wrap. We prayed. Rehearsed. Tweaked. Trimmed. Sang and played to the Lord while the tape rolled.  All the while, George took candids and helped everything run smoothly.

It’s wonderful when friends who’ve been friends a long time come together. It’s even better when Christ is the primary reason for being friends, their/our strongest common thread.

Thanks, guys, for Saturday.
It was a good morning,
worshiping and praising the Lord with you!

Do you have friends who know Christ is their Savior? Who want to serve him full-strength?  Who enjoy life, complete with struggles and challenges?  Nurture those friendships if you do; they’re priceless.

    Amen.

    Friendship built around pursuit of God is one of the greatest things on earth. I think it was part of the secret to Daniel’s success. He lived a focused life, he embraced fasting and lived a life of prayer, and he did it with friends.

    I am blessed to live in an incredible community of people who are really pursuing the knowledge of God and giving everything to live a simple life of fasting and prayer. Really, the people are probably the biggest reason I am here (the International House of Prayer), because I could pray and serve the Lord anywhere. But here, I am surrounded by people like that. All of my friends are living a life of hope, pursuing the “one thing”. Most of my mere acquaintances are sincere and wholehearted lovers of God.

    Those friendships really are priceless.

    I am truly blessed among men.

    I agree.

    Paul too. Friends went with him on his missionary journeys.

    Jesus chose a dozen.

    In church planting, teams are more effective than solo endeavors the majority of the time.

    There’s a great deal to be said for “community”. It’s more than a buzz-word; it’s part of a vibrant life in Christ.

    (Thanks for adding to the conversation here – I appreciate it.)
