A few weeks ago, a seminary buddy hopped in the car with me to run errands-- he needed to talk, and I needed to pick up packages. Years ago, I spent more fun time with one couple painting their nursery than I have before or since. One of my favorite college memories (well over a decade ago now) is of a friend playing DJ while I packed up my dorm room, as he chatted with me and made my oxfords dance with my strappy sandals.
How can we make friendship about Companionship, rather than Entertainment? I like throwing the occasional party, but I don't think isolated events successfully make us part of each other's lives. How can we start letting our mundane details overlap? I want to figure out how to live our lives together, instead of interrupting them for each other.
