Confession, I am a Valentine's Day Scrooge. There, I said it! Why do we have to have ONE defined day where we are supposed to tell someone we love them? I find it more meaningful to receive a love offering on an ordinary day than the one day you are expected to receive a gift.
Why this talk of Valentine's Day in January? First, virtual schooling means dropping off Valentine's this week so Valentines bags are ready for pick up in two weeks. Second, the candy heart graphics in our current sermon series, Love Does. Just looking at them, I crave a box.
Our Love Does series though is not about how to love on one special day, but rather ways to show love on all days. This Sunday's focus is Love Builds Up and I can't help but think of all the ways we are striving to Build Up each other and the work of United Christian Church. Specifically through the work of our Holy Conversations.
We are nearing the end of these conversations and we want to ensure that everyone has had an opportunity to participate. We invite EVERYONE to complete this form on Vision (even if you participated in Holy Conversations). There are additional questions that will help our complete our church profile as we prepare ourselves for what comes next. Questions and summaries from previous Holy Conversations can be found on our website.
Thank you for all the ways you continue to be love in our world.
