They never told us making friends would be a challenge. Growing up, making friends was easy - we were stuck in the same classes with the same people or we lived in the same dorms. Now?

We may have a great conversation with someone we meet - but how do we move from acquaintances to friends? And if they don't agree with you on everything - does that take friendship off the table? In this episode - we will unpack these nuances and take a closer look at how Jesus befriended others.

If you have heard anything about flights lately, you won't be surprised that our recent trip involved a flight cancelation, 12 hours in an airport, a flight reroute, and an additional two hour drive - just to get to our destination.
