The Convocation ended today and Rev. Peter Marty’s last teaching was this morning. He talked about love, specifically love for a congregation. His words spoke to my heart as he quoted one of my favorite lines - people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. People respond to a desire to love that manifests in wanting to know them, truly listening to them, and having compassion for them. Then he said that a congregation is a group of people to fall in love with.
What a great image. What an inspiring reminder. And what a role model we have for loving in our Lord and Savior who loves us unconditionally, forever.
Now it’s time for a couple of days of R&R with my husband! Woohoo! But this has sure been a wonderful time of learning and a great end to my attending Convocations in NC. :-)
