When Love is like God - Fiona Calder
I do not normally stand at the front and do the sermon. But inside of me is a child called Preacher Girl and she has been giving me hassle lately about wanting to preach her stuff. You may have run into her in my emails or when you’ve sat down for a cup of tea with me. She’s not necessarily intellectual, but she is passionate about what she believes to be truth.
Preacher Girl’s talk today is a snippet from my quest to discover more of what Love really is and what it is not.
I’ve been on this adventure to find what Love is for many years—and I’m still on it. Throughout my life, I have experienced several complex, destructive relationships. Within each of those relationships, people were convinced that their words and actions toward me were motivated by 'love'. In fact, much harm was done to me in the name of 'love', and it scrambled my brain, making it impossible for me to trust Love or even to be able to identify what is loving and what is not.
