If you’ve ever read C.S. Lewis’s fantastic book “The Four Loves”, or reflected on the relationship between David and Jonathan in the Bible, you may have noticed how deeply and ardently and passionately friendship is sometimes depicted in classic books and art.
C.S. Lewis writes, “To the Ancients, Friendship seemed the happiest and most fully human of all loves; the crown of life and the school of virtue.” Aristotle counted friendship a virtue, we read particularly in older literature how characters really LOVE their friends. But Lewis makes the case that appreciation and cultivation of this type of love as one of the crowns of life is often lost in modern times.
We bring Lewis’s book up because today is an Ask Us Anything episode about friendship! Sarah Pitts, an extremely talented modern dancer, mother to three little children, and great friend to Rachel asked if we could tackle this question: “How do the three of you make, maintain, and prioritize fruitful friendships in the midst of family/work and community obligations?”
