Gave a talk at SR about Love, how it should be with no preconditions or agendas, partly inspired by Donald Miller BLJ and this interview from Anberlin’s Steven Christian. I’m not like this, but we all should be.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I feel like it sums up the struggle that is my school. Funnily enough, I’ve even seen a girl wearing “abortion is murder”. I remember thinking at the time “who are you?”

Love it. So true. Jesus never did anything with any intention but love. He didn't engage with people because he wanted to evangelise or push a point of view, it was just out of love. And that is the kind of love that is free and life transforming. Its how jesus is. His love changes us:) love it!
wow thanks, that's awesome. I love anberlin but I didn't know they were christian but man I love them so much more after listening to that. I feel so convicted, so challenged…there is so much to work on haha. I'm going to listen to Anberlin right now. Btw your talk on Love was really good.
I still have the mirror from the talk, and I was looking at it the other day and realised something. I know Gabe seems to be able to easily call God his lover, but God's a dude, and I just don't equate those kind of emotions and idea easily with God. But I was looking at the mirror really close up, and realised a way that helped me see how God is like that, like when 2 people are really face to face, not just looking at each other, but so close you see every line, even every flaw on someone's face, so close you can't hide anything, and that that is how God looks at us.
It was hard for me to look that close at myself, it was very personal, even though it was just me.
