Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here to witness, celebrate, and take part in something holy. We are caught in a love story. The Bible describes our relationship with God as a marriage. But what exactly does that mean? Author and pastor Vermon Pierre ushers us into an understanding of that beautiful, life-giving relationship. By tracing this love story throughout the Bible, Pierre shows how the Lord's beloved love for us can better unite us to one another as we experience: how to love with words how to love with delight how to love with presence how to love through difficulty We are living in a time of greater isolation, disunity, and loneliness. As we learn what it means to be Dearly Beloved, that all changes. Through the metaphor of marriage, we learn how we are loved, how to love God, and how to love one another. This timely resource helps us establish a truer fellowship and deeper unity within the church and a more holistic devotion to Jesus.
