- Nancy Ferree-Clark - "Called to Be Friends" (May 8, 1994)
Sermon start time: (Part 1) 00:13. Sermon end time: (Part 1) 16:57.
The preacher discusses the nature of Christian undrestanding of friendship. She concludes that friendship can show us our need to connect with others and ultimately God. (Abstract created by Duke Divinity School staff.)
Key quotation: Surely, self-sufficiency for the sake of not ever needing friends would be last thing Jesus would have advocated. Part of true love is acknowledging our need to be in relationship with others and ultimately, with God. Friendship, a reciprocal and mutual love, recognizes this truth, that we need not only to give ourselves in love to others but to receive love in return, that human beings are not meant, like Jupiter, to retreat into themselves and to live with themselves alone.
