I've been at this church for a long time. Long enough to see the good, the bad and the ugly, but today I think we were a little light in a couple of lives that maybe haven't seen a whole lot of light. I'm thankful I was able to be a part of it.
As part of the ceremony, someone read St. Paul's definition of love:
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres."
If only we could learn to love like that.
