In this episode, Jay Voorhees looks at another Greek word for love, Eros, and thinks about the place of passion in the life of faith.
Jay Voorhees continues with the Summer of Love podcast, talking about Storge, the Greek word for familial love used in the New Testament. What does it mean to be “kin” together? How do we understand ourselves as part of God’s family? What can Ruth teach us about being a family?
In this episode Jay Voorhees considers the example of the friendship between Jonathan and David, suggesting that friendship is the practice field for where we learn how to love God and neighbor.
In this episode of the Summer of Love series, Jay Voorhees unpacks the Greek word Xenia, which is the form of love found in hospitality. Hospitality is the first step toward embracing a holistic understanding of love.
The church talks a lot about love but do we really know what love means? Today we start on a journey to explore love in God’s kingdom.
Sr. Pastor Jay Voorhees preaches from Colossians 1:1-4 and talks about bearing fruit.
- Are you asking if you are bearing fruit?
- What might some of the reasons be that you aren’t bearing fruit as an individual, or we as a congregation?
