Sixth Sunday of Easter
For most of us, the word 'love' is highly ambiguous. What does 'love' really mean? Love is possibly the most overused, overrated, misunderstood four-letter word in our entire English vocabulary. I love my ipod. I love to eat. I love Led Zeppelin. I love babies and bacon rolls. I love my husband, my children. I love to run. I love to garden. I love figs and honey and home-made bread. I love love. But what exactly do I mean when I say all of this?
Love: what a conundrum. But Jesus is not ambiguous about love. He is not reticent to say what he really means about love and its requirements. He says: This is my commandment: that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends...love on another.
Join us, this Sunday, and see what this love means. All are welcome.
