The great Middle Ages poet, Geoffrey Chaucer, has been credited for taking what the third century Roman saint, Valentine, stood for and bringing about the celebratory day of romantic love we know as Valentine’s Day. As followers of love itself, God (1 John 4:8), and as His servants at the University of Saskatchewan, we serve to show and tell of a love more lasting than human romantic love.
Every day we marvel at how God’s love reveals itself as we witness international couples growing to love each other, young parents enthralled by the life of their newborns, and young Christians understanding God’s love for them and His calling to love His family. In the past twelve months, we attended weddings, newborn celebrations, and baptisms in our international community. What a privilege and joy to be part of their lives and to share our experience in helping these young friends learn God’s wonderful plan for marriage, parenting, and a love relationship with God himself.
