E95: Embracing Your Loneliness: A Recipe for Disaster or Deeper Compassion?

"I don't wanna be lonely no more..." (Rob Thomas, 2005) 

We're in a loneliness epidemic and we want to find a way out. But what if there's something to be gained by EMBRACING LONELINESS in healthy ways instead of simply trying to eliminate it? Jason Gaboury, author of Wait With Me: Meeting God in Loneliness, joins this week to talk about the extremely counter-intuitive approach of finding greater compassion and connectedness by embracing our loneliness.
