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.

A day in the life of a CofE vicar

Recommended Posts

Something I saw online that I thought might be interesting. A Yorkshire vicar has written a book about moving to his parish and his years there, and the article features an exerpt from his interview and first day. It seems pretty normal to me, but it is likely to be different enough to the US system (he had to be interviewed by the Lord of the Manor - in 1997, not 1897.) that it might be an interesting look at the faith and the way it is practiced.

 

The full book is "Shepherd of Another Flock" by David Wilbourne, and it is on Kindle and Amazon. (WIlliam, sorry I don't know how to embed an affiliate link that will credit the boards). I've linked the article below.
