#theliturgistsbookclub All About Love: Chapter 5 

Similarly to hooks, and despite the way it's often trotted out as a cliché, 1 Corinthians 13 has been one of the few portions of scripture I could never let go of, that always offered warmth and strength when I felt cold and shaken. Do any of you have a verse or quote like that?

Folks of it is time to start thinking about next months book.

Do we want to go for a selection from the list of selections or we could go for Richard Rohr’s new book which is out on the 5th March? Thoughts?

All About Love Chapter 11 

This chapter was an emotional read for me. My father died suddenly/unexpectedly a few years ago and it was devastating to the family, and it broke me to my core for some time. From that time on I’ve done a lot of thinking about death, and have a complicated relationship with it. Reading this chapter freed me a little and gave me some space to reflect on death in a different way. I don’t have much else to say about it. I’m glad I read this book.

As I sit waiting for post-surgery news I read "The basic interdependency of life is ignored so that separates and individual gain can be deified" (bell hooks). Watching the compartmentalized but interdependent departments work on my 6 year old I wonder if I'm feeling love for them or if I'm just feeling grateful because they are caring for the one I love. Is love more than a gratitude for what I benefit from the relationship? Do I really love God or am I just grateful?

“All about love” is the best book I’ve read in a while. Whoever suggested it is a genius.
