Series: Love is All You Need-Fall 2022
October 16, 2022 | Rev. Melanie Homan
In the 2005 movie Wedding Crashers, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson crash wedding receptions for fun and to party for free. At one of the weddings they crash, the pastor says, "The bride's sister will now read scripture". Owen says to Vince, "Twenty dollars, First Corinthians," to which Vince replies, "Double or nothing, Colossians 3:12". Join us on Sunday as we take a closer look at THE most popular scripture chosen for wedding ceremonies.
Love is a simple word with a lot of complexity behind it. When questioned about the most important commandment, Jesus said that loving God and loving others were the greatest of priorities. Paul wrote some of the most beautiful words about love, saying that love was greater even than hope and faith. We will kick off our fall talking, sharing, and practicing loving God and others. From the delight of loving our children to the challenge of loving our enemies, love is a wonder and a mystery. Loving others sounds wonderful, but is often the hardest work we will ever do. Good thing we get to wrestle with it together!
