Friendship with God
God – out of the abundance of divine relational life, not any need for us – desires humans into existence for the sake of friendship. This thesis may sound strange, because it runs counter to much teaching about God. As I begin my Lenten journey, I pray to understand what it means for my life that God wants to be friends with me.
The entire season of Lent points towards my birth into eternal life and my on-going friendship with God.
