When asked what was the greatest of the Old Testament’s 613 commands, Jesus answered: “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength” (Deuteronomy 6:4-5). In this class, we look at what it means to love God – our cultural ideas of love may lead us astray here – and how we can do that with our hearts, souls, minds, and strength.
If you have been part of the class online, you may wonder where our co-teacher Kevin was. He woke up ill, and I missed having him with me – he is a great teacher! He’s fine now and will be back with us next week.
