2014-15 Theme: The big commandment — loving God, neighbor and self

Jesus told his followers that loving God was the supreme commandment, followed closely by loving one’s neighbor as oneself. How can we do a better job at self-love and self-care so that loving our neighbors becomes an even more natural flow of love from our God-centered hearts? Parables explores these questions through Biblical parables and personal stories, augmented by songs that cover a range of styles from classical to world music and gospel. Their words and their witness will inspire you.
