The Month of Love

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.
