Invitation

Agape

In the quiet places under the snow,
In the empty places where fallen leaves once hung,
In the shifting colors of firelight and candlelight,
In the broad glory of winter sunset,
In the sanctuary filled with singing,
The Holy Spirit waits.
Open your heart and be filled.

 

Note:  Agape is the noun form of the Greek verb the New Testament writers use for God’s love for us and the love we have in return for God and for one another.  It is different from philia, friendly affection, and eros, sexual love.
