Outline

I. ALIENATED BY SIN (AND TECHNOLOGY)
"Technology proposes itself as the architect of our intimacies... suggesting solutions that put the real on the run." - Sherry Turtle
II. BUILDING FRIENDSHIPS
"Friendship is vulnerability across time." - Justin Earley
III. AS GOD IN CHRIST
"We didn't come from chaos... We did not come forth from loneliness... We came from friendship." - Justin Earley

Discussion Questions

  1. Who are your friends? Is there anyone in your life who knows everything about you? 
  2. Put your finger on some of the hindrances to friendship in your life. Is it location? Time?
  3. What one change might you make to give yourself a better chance at true friendship? 
  4. How would believing the gospel more deeply improve your friendships? (Do you need to be stronger or softer?)
