Personal Philosophy

From one perspective, Christianity is quite simple: it’s about love. But that love is anything but simple. It is not just the easy love, but the love of enemies, the love seen in tolerance and acceptance of those different than ourselves, and the love seen in the care and nurture of those least able to care for themselves and of the world which God has given us.
