God is Love

God is Love

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
1 John 4:7-12 ESV

Grace to you and Peace.

What a beautiful summer season we are blessed with this year.   hope you are enjoying it.

Cruising a back road (Route 62) a few days back, Wayne and I drove by this field with the heart in the middle. Of course, I had Wayne stop so I could take a picture.  I was focused on capturing the heart in my picture, however, what also caught my eye, but I did not capture, were two white Adirondack chairs with back towards the road facing the heart.  As I reflected on the scene, I thought of the folks gathering in those chairs to focus on love; hoping and praying love will grow.  I believe love is all around us.  I invite you to pause and reflect on where love is growing in your life this past week? month?  Invite another to reflect with you and share the blessings of love with one another.

In Christ’s Light and Love,

Pastor Pat
