There used to be an unwritten rule when it came to the last night of any Christian event: you must sing Michael W. Smith’s “Friends are friends forever.” For me, that meant a guy named Jaime would bust out the electric piano and belt out the song that had all of us a little teary eyed. It was the perfect way to say goodbye to all the new friends you’d made at Christian camp but would probably never see again. Take us out with the chorus Michael. Send us home happy:
Though it’s hard to let you go In the fathers hands we know That a lifetimes not too long to live as friends.
