As we get older it is easy to miss the importance of friendship:
We assume that 'being friends' is for kids at school
We believe only teenagers are hung up on peer pressure
We get busy with responsibilities
We have been hurt and withdraw
It was great this last Sunday to have Vinu & Julie visit Redeemer & hang out with our family last Sunday.
I first met Vinu at a mission in India, he subsequently came to speak at the church I was leading in Hillingdon and then Josh & I went to stay with his family in Mumbai for a week.
It was great to talk & laugh together for the day on Sunday
I hope we do meet up again next year.
I do believe that we are more together than apart - none of us is meant to be an island, isolated and alone.
