Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is 'Labelling Love'.
As we approach Valentine's Day, it seems that love hearts are everywhere around us. The words 'I love you' touch us deeply. The truth is, though, that this word love is used widely and to describe many different kinds of feelings and relationships. Your love for chocolate, your partner, and your pet are all different. Your love for humankind is still another thing. We give all of these relationships and more the label of 'love.' Do these different loves have something in common?
Today, we explore love - what it is, what it isn't, and how our love can grow to enhance our lives and to make a better world.
