Often times, Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap. More often than not, we associate Valentine’s Day with Eros, romantic love. But there is so much more to love than all that mushy stuff! Just look at the many kinds of love recognized by the ancient Greeks: there is Philautia, the love of oneself; Ludus, the playful love you feel at the start of a relationship (think hearts aflutter and goofy grins); Pragma, the enduring love that goes on year after year; Philia, the love you feel for your friends; Storge, the love you feel for your family, your children, and your parents; Agape, selfless love for all—something we as Christians strive to embody. That’s a lot of love to celebrate!

On Sunday, February 12, we will ALL come together and show our love for each other and for the Lord, as we share food and fellowship at our Valentine Carry-In Lunch at 11:30 a.m. There will be a sign-up sheet in the Rotunda starting Sunday, January 22.  The sign-up sheet will help us to have a better variety of food, as well to have an accurate count for seating. If you have questions, feel free to contact Marianna Gill at 282-5969.
