“Love and understanding never condemn but always seek to help and encourage.”
– Meher Baba
“It is a lie – any talk of God that does not comfort you.”
– Meister Eckhart
“God is a lavish lover.”
– Rev. Adriene Thorne
The journey of faith and justice is a long road, but at its heart is a loving God who carries us. As Rev. Adriene Thorne writes, “God is a lavish lover. All that God offers humanity is done with tantalizing sweetness and tenderness that seeks above all else to woo a fallen creation back to God’s self.”
Join us as we explore God’s lavish love in conversation with Rev. Adriene Thorne as part of our October curriculum.
