Pastor’s Note: The Summer of “One Another”

I was talking recently with a young man who has a good job in a good city with a good family. But he admitted to me, “I just don’t have any really good friends. There’s no one I really connect with that’s passionate about the things I believe really matter and really gets me.”… [more]
