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.

Remains of five Archbishops found in Lambeth

Recommended Posts

Workmen lowering a floor in London for a new exhibition found the resting place of 17th and 18th century churchman, including 5 Archbishops of Canterbury. It is strange to think that the resting places of such highly placed churchmen were lost , when it has only been a couple of centuries and records cover that period quite thoroughly. The current plans are that they will be left to rest in the uncovered crypt, but a glass plate will be fitted over the opening to allow visitors to gaze in on the tombs. I think that seems rather irreverent myself, and that the crypt should have been resealed with a marker to ensure it was not lost again. Nonetheless, it is a historical find for the church.
