Bette Midler claims love isn't a river or a razor like some say it is. She says "love, it is a flower."

Michael Jordan says love is "being a rookie" and winning a championship and making a lot of cash in the process.

Yale professor and psychologist Robert Sternberg says love is the intersection of passion, commitment and intimacy.

One of the first Christians, a guy named Paul, described love like this:

"Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn't want what it doesn't have.
Love doesn't strut,
Doesn't have a swelled head,
Doesn't force itself on others,
Isn't always "me first,"
Doesn't fly off the handle,
Doesn't keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn't revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end."

Tonight at ikon we'll try to get a better grip on what love is. See you tonight.

Hey, who does Ikon's cool graphics and photoshop work. Very nice!

I do. No photo shop. No cashola for the software. I lay stuff out in keynote or powerpoint and then take a picture of it with "grab" - that free software that comes with the Mac OS.

Used to be a graphic designer but don't own the latest software anymore.

Thanks for the kudos though. We do whats we can.

Hey Shaun...powerful message last night. Have you ever experienced a time in life where it seems everything is layed out in a theme? Like God keeps telling you the same thing everywhere you turn...be it in rush hour traffic or a coffee shop or in the midst of a church gathering.

My theme is love, forgiveness and trust. So needless to say, the message last night was quite appropriate (and I know God had much to do with the timing.) I heard several other people say that they found it powerful as well. Thank you for pouring into us, Shaun. It means more than you could know!

I still think you're like the guy in Proverbs 20:5, all the way.

I really needed to hear that, Rachel. I left last night eaten up with regrets over how I presented things: stuff I left out, stuff I added that took up to much time. It's been eating at me, making me wonder if I communicated clearly or not. Thanks for letting me know it meant something to you.

Perfectionism is a real distraction for me. Thank for killing it with your encouragement.
