Series: Love is All You Need-Fall 2022
September 18, 2022 | Rev. Brooke Heerwald Steiner
Who are our enemies in the first place? What does it mean to love them? Why would we do that? Doesn’t it encourage our enemies to keep doing what they are doing? Like most theological tasks, this one creates more questions than answers. Join us as we wrestle with how we can still put loving and compassionate acts into the world in the face of despair and destruction.
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!
