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.

Doc Martin-British Series takes off in the US

Recommended Posts

Anybody like watching this show that is about a cantankerous doctor and it takes place in the town of Cornwall England,in the coastal- fictional town of Portwenn? They have a lot of interesting and quirky neighbors that he looks after and it kind of reminds you of "Northern Exposure". I discovered it on Hula and YouTube but they say its catching on big in the States as well.

Hello there...,

 

yes, I like the show.. I have actually been there "portwenn" is the fictional name of the Cornish village , port Isaac is the actual name of the place itself.. my great uncle, my late dads uncle owned a restaurant there right on the harbour, not sure if he's still alive.. lost contact with my dads side of the family when he passed away, I know he certainly hasn't got the restaurant anymore but I remember as a kid going to help him prepare him stock up..

 

its a nice village its certainly different to town life.. nice fresh air, always fresh fish to eat., lots of rockery though, all hills and cliff tops not much flat land about.. you could see by looking out the window some times cows falling off cliffs from afar into the sea.. accidents happen, also by residents.

 

sadly I will probably never get to go there again, but it's certainly a great place to retire.. a slow life, not a life for the young.

 

its also not far at all from Bodmin moor.. where the local legendary beast has been reported to have been seen throughout the years.. I also have been there. You wouldn't want to be there at night.

 

its an alright TV show its been aired over here in the uk for years now.. loads of series I know that much, I am going to get the box sets when they end the show. Cornwall and Devon are without a doubt one of the best places in England to live.. I am not surprised that they chose that location for the show.

Thanks for sharing some of your Cornwall stories and your great-uncle, sounds like the character -"Bert Large"(a real fun character) in the series and they both owned restaurants right on the harbour. I have heard of Cornwall before I watched the show but only as a artist colony in the past. I see they are coming out with season 8 and 9 in the future,and these will be the last two seasons ,but you never know?
