Love is not a feeling. It is action. “Follow me!” This is the invitation that Jesus extends to all of us today. Jesus loved us with such fierce love that he chose to die on a cross for us. Now he calls us to love in that same way - to love him, our neighbours, our city, and even our enemies. We are called to use our skills, talents, and resources to bless and serve others. It is only as we love in action that we can truly flourish together through the life-changing love of Jesus. Love is where it all begins.
For this special life group gathering that we are calling Love Vancouver Day, we are going to serve the people of Downtown Eastside by handing out the care packages that we put together at the Evening of Worship & Justice.
We will meet at Insoo & Angela's home to pray and prepare, then serve together at Downtown Eastside, then we will gather back at the home for pizza and to discuss our experience.
