I've been reading through Counsel From the Cross by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis Johnson (excellent- can't recommend it highly enough) and I came across the following quote that connected to our discussion for Core Meeting #4.
"Because he loves and welcomes us as he does, we are transformed in our relationships with others. Because we have been loved as a child or a bride is loved, we are now free to love and welcome others generously, warmly, and joyously. His love for us is to have a powerful effect on our love for others, and it is the only thing that will motivate us to love as we have been called to."
-Elyse M. Fitzpatrick and Dennis E. Johnson, Counsel From the Cross
