35 years ago I was a part of a little, and rather goofy, band at North Park College. We called our group "Temporal Sunburn" and we were a big deal on our little campus for a hot minute (as the kids say). During the 6 months of our existence (before I graduated and two other members transferred to other schools), we wrote around 25 songs, recorded 2 albums (cassette tapes), played 3 concerts, and sold around 200 tapes and 100 or so Tshirts.
Today we're spread out all over the country and have yet to gather for the much-requested reunion tour. And even though I haven't had much opportunity to be face-to-face with some of these guys for quite a while, the friendship remains.
I'm sure that you could tell similar stories of friends from your past who you're still close with even though you don't get together often enough. What is it about friendship that creates such strong bonds?
This Sunday, December 29th, at 10:30 AM, we'll conclude our series "It's A Wonderful Life Because of Christmas" by talking about being a real friend. Who needs us to be their real friend and what does that look like? I hope to see you there. (By the way, there will not be any Sunday School classes this week)
