Paul Simon, in a song from the sixties, wrote these painful lyrics:
I’ve built walls,
A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain.
It’s laughter and it’s loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.
The sad thing, they are too often true, even among believers. But is that what God desires for his people? To be rocks, islands? I don’t think so! Join us as we see how we can care for one another!
