A Letter from Our Director
“Love makes the world go ‘round” – as the song says. But I think someone else said it before the song was written. In John’s gospel we read Jesus’ words:
I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.
Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.
(John 13: 34)
In the first letter of John, we are reminded that “We love because God first loved us.”
(1 John 4: 19) This loving thing is like a circle: God loves us, we love God and each other, God loves us, we love God and each other, etc., etc. Imagine what our world really would be like if we followed Jesus’ command to love one another because God loves us? This kind of love really would make the world go ‘round, -- a world full of good and positive things, a world of love and acceptance, a world of respect and dignity, a world of compassion and selflessness. This isn’t an impossible dream. It can become a reality in our little worlds until, like a ripple effect, it spreads to all the little worlds beyond us. As another song says, “All we need is love.” And that’s the God’s honest truth!
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. Spread the love!!
