Spiritual Friendship

It is increasingly common in our culture for groups and institutions to be just a collection of individuals – individuals who may work together or enjoy spending time together, but who at a heart-level keep each other at arm’s length. But God has not called his Church to be such a people. He has called us to have people in our lives, in his Body, whom our souls are knit to, like Jonathan’s soul to David’s – those whom we love as our own soul.
