In this episode, we explore the topics of community, friendship, and how to build deep relationships.
We’re all born with an innate need for community. And that’s because we were designed that way. Within the Godhead himself, we see a perfect eternal community between God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So when God created us in his image, he built us with an intrinsic need to be connected to him and to each other.
Unfortunately, living in a fallen world has broken our sense of connectedness and community. But it’s something that Jesus came to redeem and restore.
Oftentimes, we just need to think bigger about who is included in our “we,” and we also need to get outside our comfort zone in order to build into a broader sense of community.
In this episode, we talk about why it is that we often fail to connect with others on a deep level, and we provide some helpful suggestions on how to change that.
