Fall Sermon Series 3: Gifts of Love A series on giving from the heart. These texts all explore different dimensions of giving in love. It begins with Christ’s call to love God and love one another, especially recognized in the lives of the saints. It continues with the extravagant generosity of the poor widow, whose contribution made a sizable impression on Jesus. It offers a compelling view of Christian community in Hebrews in which all members are responsible for the encouragement and nurturing of one another. And it concludes with the grand vision of Jesus as the king of all creation, whose return and ongoing presence call us to love, courage and persistence.
