JSSS 1: Hope for True Love

July 5, 2020

One of the reasons why The Princess Bride is a favorite with so many people is that it appeals to us in many different ways, but most of all it is a love story, a story of true love that is so strong that nothing, not even death can stop it. In it we clearly hear the echoes of the Christ story, where Jesus loves us with the love that we have always wanted: True Love that is pure, infinite and unconditional.

September 6, 2020

Having a strong sense of home in our hearts can give us a sense of belonging, identity, security and confidence. But even a strong sense of home can cause anxiety when it is rooted in this world because something can always go wrong at home. Jesus has given us a new forever home with God and the way to that home is the way of love. Therefore we make God’s love the driving force in our lives so that others can also have a forever home with God.
