From Montreat: Scripture tells us that: “Faith, hope, and love abide, but the greatest of these is love ” (1 Cor 13:13). God loves us anew, every single day. Because of that love, we are called to love, too–to choose love over and over. Valarie Kaur, in her 20I7 Ted Talk, asks us to reclaim love as a revolutionary act. In a time of rage, she says, the bravest choice is to love anew, every single day. Join us as we sing, share, and learn about love–God’s love for us, love for our neighbors near and far, love for ourselves, love through hospitality, love through our congregations. Join us as we proclaim: The greatest of these is love.
Keynote Speaker: Valarie Kaur – a seasoned civil rights activist, award-winning filmmaker, lawyer, faith leader, and founder of the Revolutionary Love Project.
Special Musical Guest: Amy Grant
