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.

Search underway for Camp Pendleton Marine missing at sea

An all-hands effort is underway near the Philippines to find a U.S. Marine reported overboard Thursday morning from the amphibious assault ship Essex.

The unidentified Marine is deployed with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit based out of Camp Pendleton.

The Essex left Naval Base San Diego with its complement of Marines on July 10.

The Navy, Marine Corps and Philippine ships and aircraft are searching the Sulu Sea, where the ship was conducting routine operations, the Marines said in a news release Friday.

“It is an all-hands effort to find our missing Marine,” said Navy Capt. Gerald Olin, the amphibious squadron commander leading the search and rescue operation, in a statement. “All of our sailors, Marines and available assets aboard the USS Essex have been and will continue to be involved in this incredibly important search and rescue operation.”

The Marines’ statement said multiple searches had been conducted inside the ship while round-the-clock searches from the air were underway. Additional Navy P-8 aircraft and Philippine Coast Guard vessels have expanded the search to about 3,000 square nautical miles.

The operation began as soon as the Marine was reported overboard at 9:40 a.m. local time Thursday — 6:40 p.m. Wednesday in San Diego.

The Marines said the missing Marine’s family has been notified, but the name is being withheld while the search is ongoing.

Col. Chandler Nelms, the commanding officer of the unit, asked people to keep the Marine and the Marine’s family in their thoughts and prayers.

“We remain committed to searching for and finding our Marine,” he said.
