Talk Title: We Are Called to a Greater Love
In general, we all know and experience love as warm and soft and gentle and uplifting. We know love as something good and comforting, and we move towards it and experience it with gratitude. But, the great leaders on our race, including our way-shower, Jesus, were called to a higher level of love that put them in situations which they knew would cause them harm. Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, and Harvey Milk were all called to stand in an experience of love that put them directly in harm’s way. They stood for a love that extended beyond their personal experiences and encompassed a greater good. They stood for a love that invited all of us to stare hate, fear and sin right in the face, and they dared us to change. They invited us to evolve and expand our ideas of and expressions of love for the good of all.
This is the LOVE we are called to be! A love that is greater than our personal experience that recognizes our interconnection and extra-connection with a divine purpose. That recognizes the nature of our experience as LOVE IN ACTION. Are you ready to be that love?
