The Power That Is Love
“…for you reign in the glory of the power that is love….” So ends a prayer from A New Zealand Prayer Book, a prayer that is an expansion of what we often refer to as “The Lord’s Prayer.” It is nothing new to say that “God is Love” and that Jesus is God’s Love incarnate. But what is this Love we’re talking about? A warm and fuzzy feeling? The subject of countless popular songs? In our world, and in our churches, Love is given lip service, but, in practice, is usually seen as weakness. And yet the prayer reads, “…you reign in the glory of the power that is love….” What is this power inherent in Love? Listen as Minister of Music Karen Bryant Shipp explores the Power that is Love.
