How to Love

Some great quotes from today’s church service, delivered by author and Reverend Jan Christian (quote authors not all known!):

“Going back can change the way we go forward.”

“Violence arises when we don’t know what to do with our suffering. If you don’t transform your pain, you’ll transmit your pain.”

“It is our suffering that connects us as a human family.”

“The beginning of love is to accept others as they are, and not to twist them to fit our own image.”

“Do you want to be right or do you want a relationship?”

“We are hungry, are we not, for safe spaces to speak from the heart. Places where we do not rush to judge, to fix, to blame.”

“Give up our need to approve or disapprove.”

“In many ways we let our attachment to being right be more important to our relationships and connection to each other.”

“Listen with compassion to others.”

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Go love one another, as I have loved you.’ That’s it.”

“We need not think alike to love alike.”

“If you cannot sing like angels, if you cannot speak before thousands, you can give from deep within you. You can change the world with your love.” Sally Rogers
