Love is Like a Box of Chocolates

A heart shaped box of chocolates brings thoughts of romance and candlelight
and, well…er, Hallmark and Whitman’s Candies. Valentines Day has become
commercialized—or maybe it started out that way—but our lives are
nonetheless filled with the genuine article: love in all its complexity and
variation. We will spend some time today exploring the many shapes love
assumes in our lives – love of parents and children, pets or cheese, and
yes, even the romantic variety that gets so much air play.

We’ve asked an assortment of people to give us their thoughts on love — in
word, verse and song — each in 1-3 minute bite-sized morsels. And when they
are through everyone will get a piece of chocolate as part of the chocolate
communion that concludes our service. As Lucy says in Peanuts, “All I really
need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt!”

Speakers: Invited guests from the fellowship. Lay Leader: Jana Peirce.
