A few weeks ago, I had the honor of doing a video interview with my good friend Keith Ferrin who has an amazing ministry called “That You May Know.” Our conversation was fun and practical; highlighting 5 guidelines you should follow when you’re walking alongside a friend with cancer, illness, loss or hardship of any kind. We answered questions like:
- “How do we overcome the paralysis of doing nothing because we don’t know what to do?
- “What do I say instead of saying, ‘let me know what I can do’?”
- “What is the least helpful thing we can do?”
- “When we are loving a neighbor over the long haul, what is most important?”
Most of us have a friend of family member in need, and I think the guidelines found in this video will equip you better to walk alongside them in their hard times.
Keith and I have known each other for a long time, and he was a huge catalyst for me as I visioned and dreamed about this book. He is a fabulous communicator, and he internalizes whole passages of scripture and presents them at churches and organizations around the country. If you’re looking for an amazing presentation for your church check out his website to see what he speaks on.
If you listen to the video, take a moment and share your thoughts below.
