Yes, it’s true: Real friendship is costly. Love does make us vulnerable. But without risk, our lives will remain impoverished. Learn what it means to be a good friend in an age of judgment, isolation, and fear. 

Listen to Scott's encouragement for you as you lead this series. 



Scott reminded us that we're made in the image of God. We're made for community. God designed us to rely on each other. He said the goal of this series is to get people talking about friendship with the hope that deep friendships will form among your group.
