My beloved friends, let us continue to love each other since love comes from God. Everyone who loves is born of God and experiences a relationship with God. The person who refuses to love doesn’t know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know God if you don’t love. I John 4: 7-8

The two are absolutely and inextricably related…  God and Love.

And so Eugene Peterson writes: “If we want to deal with God the right way, we have to learn to love the right way.”

What is God doing?

Loving.

What does God want us (this church) to do?

Love.

Pure and simple (no ifs, ands or buts), love each other and those in the world for whom Christ died and lives. Dear folk, let us hold each other accountable. I love you!

Grace and Peace
