Event Details

God’s nature is relational. It is being displayed in the relationship of the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As we are created in God’s image, we too, are created for connections with God and with one another.

In fact, close connection with God and with others is the most compelling survival mechanism of mankind. Many researches have shown that all human beings, children and adults alike, need to have close and strong emotional attachment to a few significant others to be physically and mentally healthy – to survive, to cope, to thrive, and to live life to the fullest.

The loss of a felt sense of connection and attachment with such loved ones would mean suffering the greatest fear and pain of being alone and isolated in the face of the uncertainty of life.
