The Gift of Being Seen
Pastor Amara Oden
12/19/21

Scripture:

Luke 1: 39-45

Contemporary Reading:

We need to reclaim the concept of love, not as an abstract, all-embracing, fantasy but as a set of ethics, principles, values and behaviours. A love that is justice in action… To begin by always thinking of love as an action rather than a feeling is one way in which anyone using the word in this manner automatically assumes accountability and responsibility… Culturally all spheres of life — politics, religion, the workplace, domestic households, intimate relations — should and could have their foundation in a love ethic.
