Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”

 Mark 6:31

The Big Three: loving God, loving others, loving ourselves

When asked (tested, really!) about the greatest commandment, Jesus replied:  ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’  This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’  What started as a way to trip up Jesus became one of the most well known summaries of what God asks of us.  The greatest commandments are well-known by us, but are we also known and shaped by them?  Tamika Jackson will be leading us in a deeper exploration of what it means  to let every part of our lives be shaped by the three great loves that Jesus holds up for us.   

Speaker:  Rev. Tamika Jackson
