Summer Chapel: How Do You Spell “Love”?

Posted on June 08, 2015  in  [ Spiritual Life ]

John 14:15-17

If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you. (John 14:15-17)

At this week’s Chapel service, Assistant Professor of the College of Theology Pete Charpentier asked the question: “How does Jesus spell love?”

Dr. Charpentier opened his talk with examples of how other people in his life spell love, and explained that knowing how to show love has helped him to form deep, long-lasting relationships with the people in his life—and with God.

“Relationships that are really authentic, that really matter, don’t just conform to some rigidity of regulations,” Dr. Charpentier explained. “But they are really infused with the dynamic of intimacy and really knowing the other person’s heart.”

How do we demonstrate our love for God? Check out the video below for Dr. Charpentier’s full talk:
