Week 2 Discussion: Friendship

Sunday night we looked at the virtue of friendship.  We read John 15:12-15 to look at a Biblical view of friendship, and we read Luke 19:1-10 and discussed the types of people Jesus hung out with.  We talked about the importance of including everyone in our circle of friends, because we are all children of God who are made in God's image.  We discussed how bread is often seen as a sign of hospitality and symbolizes Christ in Holy Communion and looking at John 6:47-51 where Jesus says "I am the bread of life."  We made bread and were given the task of thinking of someone you need to offer friendship to, or someone you need to reconcile friendship with and give that person your loaf of bread this week.

So, I want to know...have you given away your bread yet?  How did it feel to give your bread to that person, and what was their response?  Comment on this post with your answers.

Here are some pictures from Sunday night:
