Hello friends . . . grace and peace,
1 John 4:8 says “God is Love”.
Period. It’s not complicated.
God equals Love. G = L
There’s nothing else to the equation.
We want to add things to the equation. But the truth is, there is no equation necessary. Equations make sense to us. We can grasp and understand them. We can control and manipulate them. But those things aren’t true about God. God is beyond our understanding. God’s ways are not our ways. God is not able to be controlled.
In this month of February, when we celebrate St. Valentine’s Day, we here at the STYG want to focus on the fact that God is Love and there’s really nothing else we need to add to that statement. The love of God is unconditional and is given freely to the whole world. Everyone and everything is loved by God. And when we gather together to practice the Jesus Way of Life, and learn to display that love to the world, God’s restorative mission is accomplished.
We hope you’ll take the opportunity to join us for the various things going on this month AND we pray that those things will help you connect with God’s Love and with opportunities to love and be loved. There’s lots of events happening on Sunday Youth Groups this month. Plus, D-Groups continue to gather on Wednesdays. And Film School rolls on as always. But there are also many things coming up that you can Sign Up For so check that out too!
Remember, God is Love. Period. Equation solved ;-)
peace to you
