EXPLORING LOVE!!! Learning to Love like Christ!

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • A group of us are planning on getting together to explore topics on Christ’s love for us. Topics including:

    • How much does He really love us and what does that love mean in our lives on earth on a day to day basis?

    • Can we really live up to what Christ deemed the greatest commandment of all: Matthew 22:36-39 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’

    • Is it truly possible to love others as Christ loves us?

    • Why does His love feel far away when He says He is close and His spirit lives in us?

    • Is God more of a distant God or a Loving Father who years to be close to us?

    • Can we and how do we truly love and serve the needy as Christ has called us to?

    Please feel free to email me all topics on Christ Love that you are interested in exploring! Dates aren’t set yet, but once we have an idea of interest we will be able to set dates and pick convenient locations that will work for most members.

    Also we are trying to explore adding a virtual element to these discussions so people who cannot attend can log in and still participate. Please email me if you have ideas on how we can make this effective!

    Is this event actually going to happen? I have been a member for about a year now. I have offered dates as well as a free place for small groups to meet in Germantown and there has been no movement or action in this past year.

    Hey, all. For those of you who were wondering what happened to this, the main organizers, Danny and Sheila, are in the process of getting married (as in two weeks from now), so they're a little...er, preoccupied for the time being. I notice that you all are scattered all over Virginia and Maryland. I'd like to pitch something out there to you all. Since there seems to be so much interest in this from people widely scattered apart, I suggest that we have a big meeting sometime in early July on a Saturday or somewhere in there where we can all talk about what the Spirit of God is moving to do. Perhaps what we can do then is form a number of groups centered around geographic areas: Maryland (NW suburbs and NE suburbs of DC), Virginia (NW suburbs out towards Sterling, Gainesville, etc. and the close-in suburbs: Falls Church, Arlington, McLean, etc. ). What do you all think about that? Also, if we can do it in July, then Danny and Sheila can have the time to get in on it.

    Hey,

    This sounds cool! I usually can do weeknights after 6:30 except Wed/Fri and anytime Saturdays. Can't wait to meet you all! I love how this is a big group!

    What about have it a a rented spot in a local restaurant? Or a BBQ in a park set up to host large groups?

    God Bless!

    Hi All, I sent an update via email. For all who missed it, plans for our “EXPLORING LOVE” series are in the works. A few of us have been meeting weekly in introductory meetings. We hope to refine the content and structure of our studies about Christ’s Love – which will be both practical and theoretical. We are seeking God and laying a foundation that will stand strong. We want to ensure an environment in which we can grow deeper in our relationships with Christ and become the kind of examples of His love He asked us to be when He said in “ John 13:34(NIV) 34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. I expect to have a date in a couple of weeks. I will provide further details as soon as a date is set. I eagerly look forward to getting started on this journey with you.
