Greetings from Pastor Ben
“Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is perfected in us.” 1 John 4:11-12
I’m always curious about how many people out there start a month the same way I do, by flipping open the calendar or poking the screen of the smartphone to see what Siri has lined up for me in the days ahead. For St. Mark Lutheran Church, February is one of those months with lots happening. There’s the Super Bowl on February 1st, which is an important day (of course). And there’s the beginning of Lent with Mardi Gras and Ash Wednesday on the 18th, which kicks off another busy season in the church.
Looking at the months in a children’s book, February is usually the one decorated with pink hearts and cupids. This is the month of St. Valentine’s Day (the patron saint of Hallmark, Russell Stover, and FTD Florists.) But more importantly, February and Valentine’s Day remind us about Love.
