#morelove. Brain science blows my mind. Our brains are hard-wired to protect baby humans and (most) baby animals on sight. Our brain centers for pleasure and rewards get flooded with electrical impulses and neurochemicals when we are triggered by cute little faces. For an example, see this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L49VXZwfup8 which has almost 80 million views. Is that brain chemistry cocktail “love?” Well, yes, and no. Our worship this week centers on the love God has for us and intends for us to show to each other this week, the fourth Sunday of Advent, the Sunday of Love.

Speaking of Love, you’ve got to love our choir and church musicians who, individually and collectively have continued to provide music for us all pandemic long. This Sunday, the choir will sing LIVE IN PERSON, masked, of course. Please plan to show a lot of love to this intrepid, creative, courageous group of beloveds.
