The title of this blog comes from something a child said to me in the very first children’s work session I ever led in a church. I’d carefully prepared a good twenty-minute session to lead the children from reading the Bible passage to realising that God is love. We read the Bible passage. Immediately one of the children observed that the world “love” occurred a lot of times. “Yes,” I said, “and why do you think that is?” “Because God is all about love,” he replied, in that isn’t-this-blindingly-obvious voice common to precocious nine year olds. Which left me with twenty minutes to fill, and a resolution never to underestimate the children I work with.
I like the story but I prefer “Love is God”.
