Connected Spirits  Aug 26, 2007
Connected Spirits:
Friendship and the Spiritual Journey

Henri Nouwen noted the importance of friendships when he wrote: "We need loving and caring friends with whom we can speak from the depth of our heart. Such friends can take away the paralysis that secrecy creates. They can offer us a safe and sacred place, where we can express our deepest sorrows and joys, and they can confront us in love, challenging us to a greater spiritual maturity." Researchers have found that most persons agree with Father Nouwen, in that people rank friendships among the things that matter most to them from childhood through adulthood. Friends offer companionship, intimacy, emotional support, loyalty, trust, intimacy, and fun.

Studies show that that during difficult times our friends are of particular value in sustaining our sense of well-being. College students who have quality long-term friendships report greater optimism and better adjustment to stressful life events. A national study examined stressful life events and alcohol use among adults 60 years of age and over. The results indicate that supportive resources of friends and church have a stress-buffering effect that reduces excessive-drinking during a life crisis. Researchers have also found that a lack of friends and resultant loneliness has been linked in research to depression, anxiety and a poor self-concept.

The Catholic, United Methodist, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, and Episcopal contributors in this book have reflected on their experiences with friends as a part of their own faith journey: What spiritual lessons and wisdom can be shared from encounters with close friends? In what ways did these friendships foster spiritual maturity? How have friendships deepened our faith? How have friends given spiritual guidance during difficult times? How has the experience of betrayal by friends affected one's own spiritual life? In what ways have friends challenged us to a greater spiritual maturity?
I believe that readers will find these shared stories of friendship compelling as I have, and the results are a blessing.
