When I was in Sunday school we each had to stand up and recite a Bible verse from memory each week, then we were given a little card with a 'memory verse' for the next week. Often we would forget to memorise the verse and would say the only one we could remember: "God is love!"(1 John 4:8b) Perhaps if there was only one verse in the Bible we could remember, that would be the best. The Greek word translated here as 'love' is agape which means a compassionate caring attitude rather than philia (friendship) or eros (sexual attraction).

We have many stories of God as a powerful king who delivers justice and retribution in violent and powerful ways. This is simply making God in our image and expecting God’s behaviour to mirror the most powerful of human beings.

On this fourth Advent Sunday when Love is the focus we would do well to call to mind those moments, places and experiences we have found most sacred. Perhaps it was the birth of a child, the beauty of a forest, the majesty of the countryside, an act of surprising generosity, or just an unexplainable experience of 'presence'. Surely at the heart of these is a feeling of connection with an infinite source of love and wonder. This is the heart of the universe. This is Mary's experience when she is told she will bear a son, and this is the very centre of the son she bore – Jesus, God’s love in human form.
