Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 02/07/19

When I think of ethics, I think of right and wrong conduct, but when I broaden that thought to the ethics of love I become curious – can there be a right and wrong way to love?  Being a minister I immediately think of I Corinthians 13, a scriptural passage about The Way of Love.  This particular scripture is read at many weddings, and when I am asked to read this passage during a wedding, I usually state that this is a great aspiration, and at the same time a challenge to live day in and day out. 

The verse that always jumps out at me is verse 8 which says:

 

Love never fails.

But where there are prophecies, they will cease;

where there are tongues, they will be stilled;

where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

 

I don’t know about you – but my experience has been love failing – or was is people failing?  So is there a way to love that would not fail?  Some of us are reading The Untethered Soul and Michael Singer speaks of either blocking love or allowing it to flow.  If I allow the love that I am to flow I would create a sacred space in which I would love all people and things with a pure heart.  I would also know that love would conquer all forms of hate  because I am told,  Love Never Fails

I hope you will join us at Unity of Music City on Sunday as we dive deeper into the discussion of The Ethics of Love.  One of our songwriters, Nancy Deckant, will be sharing special music with us. 

Will you Stand for Love?
