Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously said that we are the average of the five people we spend the most time with. When it comes to relationships, we are greatly influenced — whether we like it or not — by those closest to us. The people in our lives affect our way of thinking, our self-esteem, and our decisions. Finding, building and preserving great friendships is vital to a fulfilled life, but often difficult to achieve. Is there a way of creating healthy and long-lasting friendships? This week we will examine what James, the brother of Jesus had to say about this as we continue our series. Join us at one of our two Sunday services: 10:30 AM at Innis Town Hall, Downtown Toronto; or 2:30 PM at World Vision Center in Mississauga.
