Today we meet an obscure Welsh saint called Dwynwen ansd the strange story of her and Maelon who feel madly in love but, because she had commited herself totally to God, she spurned his affections. It's a stange story, more folk tale than legend, more fantasy than myth.
The point we are to ponder is what we understand by the term 'love' what does it mean? This is a question I have spoken on at numeorus weddings over the years, and know it has precious little to do with physcial attraction and a lot to do with tenacious determination.
Not much to say today!
God of love, God who is love, may I abide in the whole spectrum of love so that you would abide in me, and so that love would abide in me. Amen
