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.

2020 Democrat Presidential Debate: Who Qualified And Who Is Struggling?

Recommended Posts

By Molly Prince -



The crowded 2020 presidential primary field is beginning to shape up as Democratic hopefuls meet the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) threshold for who qualifies to participate in the party’s debates.

In order to score one of the debate podiums, candidates must either receive donations from at least 65,000 unique donors (with a minimum of 200 donors in more than 19 states) or receive at least 1 percent support in three DNC-approved polls.

With one debate scheduled for June and another for July, and each debate limited to only 10 candidates, the 20 podiums allotted are filling up. Who gets a spot at which debate will be determined by a random draw of the qualifying candidates. In the event that more than 20 Democrats qualify, those who meet both the fundraising and polling threshold will be prioritized.

Here is where 2020 presidential hopefuls stand on qualifying for debates:
