Love. Is there another word more widely used in our world today? We say we love hot dogs or Dora, and a short time later pledge our life-long, unconditional love to another. It’s a word we use to describe our feelings or what we think. But love, in its fullest, truest sense, is infinitely more. Love is action.
And when Love Does, life becomes an adventure. And not a surviving-the-grocery-store-on-Saturday kind of adventure, but the kind that is full of enlivening twists and turns, beauty and joy. This is the kind of life we are meant to live.
During this six week series, we’ll look back at ancient stories of Peter and Moses (to name a couple) to see what can happen when Love propels someone to step boldly. We’ll also consider the many forms of Love’s greatest deterrent: fear.
It’s time to live. It’s time to do. It’s time to love.
