Drew Hunter reflects on relationships with friends post-pandemic helpfully suggesting ways in which old/lost friends may be re-engaged, and how to build up new friendships. His ideas could be applied in any situation, including the church and the workplace.

"Our recent pandemic changed how many of us experienced friendship. The quarantines, distancing, and other precautions created challenges for close community. While we used creative or digital ways to connect, many still felt isolated. Perhaps one positive result of these trials is how it revealed to us just how important meaningful friendships are to life. Perhaps Augustine’s words will resonate even more deeply now: “In this world, two things are essential: life and friendship. Both should be highly prized and we must not undervalue them . . . if we are not to remain solitary, there must be friendship.” 1"
