Rev. Gretchen explores what we really mean when we say "love." She invites us to engage with the concept of love more deeply because "when we understand love not just as a word, but as an experience and a commitment, as a way of orienting our lives and the source of our hope, as a vision for the world as it could be, it will make all the difference. We will make all the difference in all the smallest corners of our lives, and across the whole of life itself."
