I’ve been blessed. Throughout my life I’ve had friends. If you will forgive the Lord of the Rings reference, Frodo would never have succeeded in his quest without Sam and I certainly would not have succeeded in mine without the friends I’ve had along the way.

There is a great deal written these days about friendship and loneliness, and I don’t hesitate to add my voice to that chorus, especially for pastors in a profession that tempts to isolation.

That all is fine, but where is the solution. That is, how does one FIND a friend? That’s the conversation we need to at least begin.
