Loneliness and weak social connections are associated with a in lifespan similar to that caused by smoking 15 cigarettes a day”. (Dr. Vivek Murthy)

 

Romans 12:3-5

3 For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form , and each member belongs to all the others.

 

1 Cor 13:4-7

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always , always trusts, always , always perseveres.

How can we connect with others

  • your neighborhood
  • Find with other

 

The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to . Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

― Rachel Naomi Remen

 

  • What and do you have that you can share with your neighbors?
  • Develop a that you can work on together

 

I define as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.

― Brené Brown
