Whether you are one of those who have always had great friendships and continue to do so, or you are someone who has only recently been questioning the need and meaning of friendship, this seminar would be of interest to all of you.
In this year’s Christian Witness Seminar, we will delve more deeply into the nature of Friendship and its correlation with happiness. True friendship is the natural source of unending happiness. This has been the conclusion many scholars, philosophers and saints have come to. It is also the lived experience of countless people, who have found the key to happy living through finding genuine friendships.
If there is something the pandemic has reminded us of, it is how sociable we are as humans beings. We have experienced the vacuum left from the absence of contact with other people during the times of lockdown. The pandemic has put into sharp focus the need for friendship, and in the quiet place of our isolation, we have come to appreciate the importance of quality relationships. In some cases, we have come to be more grateful for the friends we have. In other cases, we have come to the sad realisation that some of those we considered good friends have proven to be not quite so good.
Session 1 - Discerning the Place of Friendships in our Life
