We sing about it! We tenacious seek it! We whisper and shout “I love yous” without really understanding the depth and cost of love. We need to know that love is a learned skill, not something that comes from hormones or emotion particularly. Erich Fromm called it “an act of will.” If we look at the number of broken relationships in families or the current rhetoric in our society or the divisions in our world, it is obvious that there is still much learning to be done about love as “an act of will.” Mr. Naylor’s sermon will look at REAL LOVE, not some easy, second hand emotion.
The economy seems to be a major issue at the center of our national political discussion. Through the advertising media we are subtly told that we never have enough. For some this leads to a feelings of insufficiency which leads to ingratitude. For some others wanting or having too much is at the heart of their living a chaotic life.
In a world of abundance for some and great need for others the faith question “How Much Is Enough?” needs to be addressed.
That will be the question which Bob Naylor will consider in his sermon this Sunday.
Your wedding should be as memorable as the reception afterward, so why not celebrate your historic event at an historic site? Why not in a beautiful meetinghouse immortalized in Cape Cod Life’s May 2013 edition (p.50)?
