Women's Missionary Union
"Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself." - Matthew 22:37-39, NIV, adapted
This year's theme is "Called to Love". Over the next year, we will be exploring what it means to be called to love and how our lives can reflect that calling. There is no better person to learn how to love fthe call from than the one who called us -- Jesus. In the New Testament, we see practical examples of how He wants us, His disciples, to love. The call of every believer can be summed up in one word -- love.
