"What's Love Got to Do with It?"

Sunday, September 2 - Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

Found within our holy scriptures is Song of Songs, a sensual, earthy, and playful love poem between two people. What is it doing in the bible? Could it be that against millennia of religious tradition, we discover that God delights in human sexuality, in our physical bodies, and in all aspects of our human relationships? Listen as Pastor Melanie Vaughn-West asks "What's love got to do with it?" and Lynn Farmer reads an original poem.  Click to watch.
