One of the big events in February (a short but often eternally cold month here in Canada) is Valentine’s Day. Generally assumed these days to be entirely too commercial and a holiday celebrated mostly by couples, I thought I might take a different approach this year. Valentine’s day is also a feast day in the Anglican church, honouring St. Valentine. Long ago, the day served to honour “courtly love” among nobility, as well as “romantic love” since the fourteenth century. I thought I would use the opportunity to look at some of my thoughts about love in general. I hope to be able to interface what I’ve learned in an academic setting about love in Bible College to more personal expressions of what love means in the queer community.
