In this second week of Advent, we are lighting the candle of Love on the Advent wreath. Jesus summarized all of scripture as simple as possible by saying basically, “Love God with everything you’ve got and your neighbor as yourself.” His dear friend, the Apostle John, said that this love is derivative; we love because God first loved us. We don’t create it, we are channels for it. This season is a great time to consider our love life. If we are not loving as well as we could, we may need to ask why we are not taking in all the love God has for us so we can pass it along.
