Today we are in Mark 3:13-19. This is where Jesus selects the 12. We talk about the fight between belonging and authenticity and how important friends are. Friends that allow you to be vulnerable and authentic while still seeing you as belonging beside them. That in a post ethnocentric paradigm we ought to be grateful to find one such person and for those who have several, you should count yourself lucky. We also hit on that such circles of trust are not with out problems and even betrayal at times.
