Sermon Series: 

We Live, We Love

October 15-November 26

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
How do we live and love in right relationship with God and one another? Our human frailty and fear keep showing up. Relationships are difficult! In the most ancient stories of our Judeo-Christian tradition, we discover
that to live is to love. Let's uncover the wisdom of these narratives.
