SPIRITUAL FRIENDSHIP AS DISCIPLESHIP

Even before these days of “social distancing”, many have spoken of the experience of loneliness. It does not have to be this way, and especially not in the church community.

While our present culture pays more attention to romantic love, marriage, family and other forms of relationship, Wesley Hill challenges us to retrieve – from Scripture and tradition – a rich understanding of friendship as a spiritual vocation, and explains how the church can foster friendship as a basic component of Christian discipleship.

He helps us reimagine friendship as a robust form of love that is worthy of honour and attention in communities of faith, and suggests practical ways for all Christians to cultivate stronger friendships.

This Zoom webinar is offered under BGST’s ENGAGE Lecture Series.

About the organiser:
Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) is a theological institution that seeks to help Christians and the church reflect theologically and holistically on what is going on in the world.

It offers a thorough and systematic study programme for lay people to help them live out their Christian faith in their vocations and be more effective in serving God, emphasising not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in interpreting Scriptures.
