West End United Methodist Church

Love Letter, Part 1

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Children's moment, Sermon, Sunday service

This is the first of a series of three sermons on texts from 1 John, all titled “Love Letter,” which is the focus of that ancient letter that seems to have been written to a faith community that has begun to be confused with various teachers teaching “truths” that draw them in different directions.  The author reminds them that at the center of faith is love – love God, love your neighbor – and that is at the heart of truth.  Love is not a saying but action, exemplified by Jesus who laid down his life, his power, his innocence.  With that as an example, how do we love others?  What does love ask of me in this moment?  (NOTE: We are livestreaming both services, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are using a chamber choir and having limited congregation.  NOTE:  The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
