We are living in a global loneliness epidemic. Headlines saturate media news surrounding the growing problem – we collected at least ten published within twenty-four hours. In today’s episode, we highlight some of the first solutions offered by the new global initiative to combat loneliness by the World Health Organization, co-led by the U.S. Surgeon General. Like always, we look at them through a biblical worldview and the lens of Scripture. Naturally, we provide a few Brave Parenting solutions that are both pragmatic and biblical.
