Love is absolutely at the heart of the gospel—the life, teaching, death, and resurrection of Jesus. I want us to think about love as communion, as the experience of community, as Jesus reaching out to people through people. If God is love, then God’s people make God’s love visible.
—Kenneth H. Carter Jr., A Beginner’s Guide to Practicing Scriptural Imagination (Upper Room Books, 2020)
