I am packing up my cake plate and heading north this weekend to speak for a ladies day at the Fountain Head Church of Christ in Portland, Tenn. If you live near the Tennessee-Kentucky border, please join us tomorrow morning for an uplifting day celebrating the warmth of friendship. Registration begins at 9 a.m., lessons begin at 9:30, and we will conclude the day with lunch.
I believe our Christian sisters are among our greatest blessing in this life. Andrew M. Greeley described the power of friendship: "There is an electricity about a friendship relationship. We are both more relaxed and more sensitive, more creative and more reflective, more energetic and more casual, more excited and more serene. It is as though when we come in contact with our friend we enter into a different environment."
