326: Cultivating friendship; the first step

It’s a line Bart Campolo uses a lot in this podcast and elsewhere, that the essence of life is cultivating loving relationships with other people. Today’s question asks how to begin the process of doing that:

“Bart often talks about about cultivating loving relationships, but I’m never sure what he means or what I’m supposed to do. Don’t get me wrong, I was popular enough in school and I’ve always gotten along well with the people I work with, but I don’t know how many of my friends would say they actually feel loved by me, or vice versa. I’m not asking for Bart’s ’12 Rules For Life’, but I’d sure like to know Step One when it comes to connecting more deeply with the people in my life.”

Bart borrows heavily from Dale Carnegie’s classic book How To Win Friends and Influence People in his response, which he uses to break it down to a single, basic point.
