Love Will Keep Us Together

One interpretation of the Song of Songs is that it’s an expression of the love between God and God’s people, or between Christ and the Church. Like the love between bridegroom and bride, full of longing, gentleness, respect and passion, God’s love is pure and enlivening. We need to be people of love in these times, demonstrating it in our actions: in kindness, in giving, in solidarity — both with those for whom we feel affection, and for those whom God has placed in our circle. And our circle needs to keep getting wider.

You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ — A Look at Love from the Prophet Hosea

Hosea is called to the ultimate in “performance art,” embodying love through a troubled relationship with a prostitute, and it’s an incredibly strange story. I invite you to look at this crazy love story as a metaphor for the relationship between God and God’s people. Even when we’ve lost that loving feeling, when we’re at our unlovable worst, God chooses love. God will go down in the trenches, and God can even empower us to go down in the trenches.
