Wedding Day

NEWS Wedding Day

Regarded by many to be the ideal understanding of romantic love, 1 Corinthians 13 falls into a predictable pattern of use for wedding ceremonies. In this sermon by Emily Anderson, she reveals what real love looks like in human relationships, how it is not an emotion or feeling but rather a practice and action, and that true love always begins with God.

“At Princeton, we had precept groups—we’d engage text and debate. That gave me confidence to have those conversations anywhere.”
