Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Hi peppermint,

 

I've been away so I'm late in welcoming you to the forum.

 

Good to have another catholic on board!

 

God bless

Bede, if I have correctly read your profile you are in England and so are closer to my time zone; I am GMT + 8, William is GMT - 7 or - 8 depending on DST, if you read this soon come visit the chat room and we can chat a bit.

Time zones are still well apart.

 

And this 'venerable one' has never used a chat room! You can always PM me if you want to discuss something in particular.:)

Well, somehow you being -8 relative to me works better than William being -16 relative to me. I think it is because you wake after I have had lunch whereas William is having dinner when I wake.

On the other hand 24-16=8. So William is only 8 hours relative to you the other way. :D

Yes, but it is effectively +8 (-24) and that means when I wake he is happily enjoying his afternoon nap!
