Friendship and relationships are inseparably connected to the heart of God. Not only were we all created in the image of our relational God, who exists in community, but making friends is a critical component to making new disciples of Jesus.
This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll teach you 5 steps to making friends quickly. We’ll show where to look, and give you the confidence to find new friendships and bridge those relationships into the rhythms of your normal life.
Most people don’t avoid making new friends, but are often distracted or fall into self-focused patterns for so long that they have missed many opportunities for real relationships with new people of peace that are right in front of them.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
Why making new friends is not an “introvert vs. extrovert” issue.
Where to look for new friendships in places you already frequent.
How the lost art of being a good listener is key to this process–and discipleship.
5 steps you can begin to use immediately to make friends quickly.
“That home or apartment you have is a resource and meant to be shared with others. When you sense that certain people are “leaning in” to relationship and seem open to being your friend, invite them over for a simple meal, coffee or just to hang out and watch TV. This breaking of the wall of public and private is key to building relationships and trust. True friendships are not contained in social boxes…they eventually permeate our lives both public and private.”
