What does it mean to love?

This Sunday, our scripture reading will be "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind... and you shall love your neighbor as yourself."


We discussed this passage from Matthew in our Zoom bible study this morning.  Most of us agreed that these are VERY familiar verses.  Maybe TOO familiar!  But when we began to unpack these phrases, things quickly got complicated.


I was left with many questions, including:  What does it mean to love?  To love God?  To love my neighbor?  To love myself? What does that look like?!  How is our love made visible in the world?


As Election Day approaches and we continue to ride out this pandemic, how does "loving our neighbor" manifest in our public actions and decisions?  What do you think?  Where is God calling you to send some love this week?


Join us this Sunday as we continue to explore Jesus' commandment that we love!
