The Four LovesLenten Brownbag Lunch & Book Discussion

Wednesdays, February 21–March 21
12:45-1:45 p.m. in McGill Hall

We will be reading C.S. Lewis's The Four Loves which  contemplates the essence of love and how it works in our daily lives. Lewis examines four varieties of human love: Affection, the most basic form; Friendship, the rarest and perhaps most insightful; Eros, passionate love; Charity, the greatest and least selfish. Throughout this compassionate and reasoned study, he encourages readers to open themselves to all forms of love—the key to understanding that brings us closer to God. Join us for worship in the Chapel beforehand or just come for the discussion. The book is easily found in your library or online. Questions? Contact the Rev. Valerie Hayes.
