When you think of God, the first word that comes to mind might not be “friend.” But this is the word Jesus uses in John 15:15, when he tells His followers, “No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” In this series, we're talking about what it means to have a friend in Jesus!
In this first episode, Lauren invited her friend Machelle Clark to help us kick off the series. Machelle showed Lauren what it looked like to follow Jesus when Lauren was in college.
Machelle has worked in campus ministry with The Navigators for almost 30 years but is currently the Pastoral Staff Care Leader at Cornerstone Church in Ames, IA. She has six children and six grandchildren, with another due this fall.
Machelle talks with Lauren & Mandie about what it looks like to have a friend in Jesus and how that friendship impacted her and Lauren's relationship.
