Inspired by our book club reading (Bell Hooks, All About Love: New Visions) we will spend May reflecting on Love. A few thoughts on love from the book, "The lack of an ongoing public discussion about the practice of love in our culture and in our lives means that we still look to books as a primary source of guidance and direction... The truth is, far too many people in our culture do not know what love is. And this not knowing feels like a terrible secret, a lack that we have to cover up... To begin by always thinking of love as an action rather than a feeling is one way in which anyone using the word in this manner automatically assumes accountability and responsibility... When we are loving we openly and honestly express care, affection, responsibility, respect, commitment, and trust." We will engage in discussion to explore these and other thoughts, let's see where it takes us. The focus on Love is also a good opportunity to practice some loving-kindness meditation!
