#288 | Steve Strauss | Define "Love"

What is your suggestion or idea?

I would like to see ““love”” defined, as it is used in the world in so many ways. Including love of the unborn by those against reproductive rights for women. And I don’t think is too hard to do in the large meaning intended. How about something as simple as this? ““Love means compassionate care and concern for others and our natural world.””

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

Using the term love as the central idea of Article II without defining it just seems crazy to me! It has so many connotations and so much variation based on context.

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?
