We were created out of love for love, but it's not always easy to love some people. Adam Weber, pastor at Embrace Church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, knows that well — so well that he wrote an entire book about a season of life where he was finding it difficult to love everyone.
His new book, "Love Has a Name: Learning to Love the Different, the Difficult, and Everyone Else" came out Aug. 25, and it's a really unique way to talk about love. Each chapter is the story of someone in Adam's life who embodies love or something he learned to love. He uses everyday people in his life to tell the story of love and compares them to someone in the Bible with a similar story.
The ultimate goal is to show how Jesus loved and how we're called to love others. It's an incredibly timely book, as well. With the racial unrest of this summer along with the upcoming presidential election, times are tense and we've seen more vitriol where there could be love. I hope this conversation blesses you and calls you to love on others when you might be tempted to fight or argue.
