Digital download: A reflection and resources for Valentine’s Day, focusing on a broader interpretation of what it represents: ‘Christian love … is not just about one normative, monogamous, romantic relationship. It’s bigger than that. We are called to love the other.’ The author advocates a community-focused understanding of love on Valentine’s Day as part of the work of addressing concerns in many areas of life. And part of loving the other is first to accept and love oneself. Two mini-labyrinths (or finger labyrinths) are included to use as tools for reflection.
