Love Shapes Us
Have you ever changed because of love? One of my favorite poems, written by Pedro Arrupe, speaks to how love shapes us:
Fall In Love
By Pedro Arrupe, SJ
Nothing is more practical than finding God,
that is, falling in love in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination,
will affect everything.
It will decide what gets you out of bed in the morning,
what you will do with your evenings,
how you will spend your weekends,
what you read, who you know,
what breaks your heart,
and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.
Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.
Union, we have committed ourselves to Love Over All. That’s my elevator speech when people ask me what Union is about: we’re about Love Over All. Love over individualism, love over barriers, love over boundaries and boxes and prejudice and fear…love over and over and over again.
As members and friends of Union Congregational UCC, Love Over All is something that you find compelling. It’s something you’ve committed yourself to. Thank you for all that you give and all that you do. It is through your generosity of spirit that your life and this church are able to put Love Over All.
You are invited to prayerfully consider your pledge to the ministry of Union Congregational United Church of Christ, and as you are able, to grow your giving each year. Please return your pledge card to the church office or email your intentions to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 10.
Thank you for your faithful generosity!
Pastor Bridget Flad Daniels
