It's Valentine's, a time people get fascinated with romantic love. Romance and love with a partner are crucial issues in human life--always worth talking about, but let's vary the emphasis just a little. In order to love another person, at least on some level, you have to love yourself and believe yourself lovable. What does it mean to love yourself? What does it mean to love another as yourself--as Jesus said to do? What does it mean to love everybody?

There is no charge for the Gay Spirit MeetUp Group meetings, though we are asked to spend some money at the coffee bar at Genuine Joe's--so be sure to tell the people serving you coffees, cold drinks, cookies, snacks, etc that you're with the MeetUp. And please plan to arrive five or ten minutes early to get something from the snack bar AND to be on time. We always begin with introductions and if you arrive late we're liable not to get to learn your name and who you are.
