Walking home after Sabbath services this morning I noticed this hanging on the fence alongside the First Congregational Church in Madison. I agree with all the exhortations (at least my interpretations of them) but the priorities seemed a bit askew. Shouldn't "Love God" be at the top if the idea is to "be the Church"?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Matt 22)
