Vicar's Blog 13th February 2011

Monday is St. Valentine’s day. The shops are full of cards, flowers & presents, to send to your loved one. Everybody likes to feel loved and appreciated. It seems a good idea to share your love. After all the opposite of love is hate and there is certainly enough of that in the world.

I have been shopping for all the Valentine goodies! It is even more special in the Vicarage because my wife has her birthday on that day. So there will have to be even more presents.

I do believe that the expression of love fits very well into what the Church is about. ‘As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you. Dwell in my love (John 15.9)’. The word’s of Jesus apply very well to St. Valentine’s day.
