Easter 6

"I do not call you servants any longer... but I have called you friends..."
-- from this morning's gospel reading

This is one of my favorite quotations on friendship:

When a friend is in trouble, don't annoy him by asking if there is anything you can do. Think up something appropriate and do it.

-- Edgar Watson Howe

And here's the other:

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
I don't know who said that but it's very true. And real friends are very rare.


  1. i was intrigued with the "friend" verse during lectio sunday morning - what does it mean to be a friend of God?...and i love how this thought relates to your quote - what am i wanting to do for my friend Jesus that i don't really need to ask Him about first?

  2. Oh, that's a wonderful question, Roberta.

    Thank you.
