"A scientist said, making a plea for exchange scholarships between nations, 'The very best way to send an idea is to wrap it up in a person.' That was what happened at Christmas. The idea of divine love was wrapped up in a Person."
-- Halford E. Luccock
We are inspired this Christmas season to practice love, to give and receive it regularly, and to keep practicing it until we become pros. The problem we have with this task is that our idea of love is so tainted - most love is conditional and contractual, at least in our experience. How can we love in a manner that is "agape" or "divine"? That is our quest, and we hope you are inspired to join us on this journey as well.
We hope you have had a wonderful Christmas Day and holiday break. It has been an odd one for us on this end, but we managed to make it fun and memorable. We (Brent, Jonathan, and Jess) actually just returned from watching a movie - that might be our new tradition - and now are all huddled around computers doing some research on history and conspiracy theories, as inspired by the 2nd National Treasure installment. There are so many good movies coming out soon - the next Chronicles of Narnia installment, the next Batman sequel, the next Indiana Jones - all very exciting for movie buffs like ourselves.
Anyway...sorry about that tangent...Merry Christmas! We will write again soon.
Love - Jess and Brent
