Jesus told his disciples, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another”
Last week, we noted that the early Church was formed by the proclamation of God’s Word. Thisis not new to the New Testament. Already, in Genesis 1, we read how God spoke and male and female were created. God’s very words are creative, they bring life! Yet, it is not life in the singular. It is life in community.
