Note from the Pastor:
I want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I appreciate your friendship. Of course, I haven’t known some of you long enough to call you more than an acquaintance, but I hope that will change. A few of you I haven’t gotten to know very well even though I have known you for a while. Most of you I can call friends of mine, and that makes me feel like a rich man.
Friendship is as ordinary as air, but like air it is very precious. Deep, satisfying friendships hardly ever just happen. Instead, they are developed with great effort over a long time. The older you get, the more you see how rare a truly good and loyal friend is. “A friend loves at all times…” Proverbs 17:17.
If you have a good friend, be sure to tell them how much they mean to you. Be sure to be loyal. And remember, a great friendship can start with, “Hi, my name is…what’s yours?”
