Love, love, love (is all you need): Interfaith Reflections for Valentine’s Day

I just LOVED (an appropriate word here) the Washington Post‘s On Faith series for Valentine’s Day (a little late, but I just stumbled upon it and couldn’t pass it up). They compiled reflections on love from 8 different faith (and non-faith) traditions, each written by a guest contributor. Beautiful, honest, and thought-provoking! I highly suggest giving them a read!

    I liked this comment from your link to A Jewish Guide to Love: “Love is always between, never solely within; self-love deserves a different name because it is not transactional. What happens between two people must have a practical effect on the lovers and on the world. Love is a broadening emotion, rippling out beyond its source”.
