What’s the best part of Valentine’s Day? It depends who you’re asking. For us, it’s definitely the Luke 14 Banquet.
Valentine’s Day always receives a polarity of receptions. Single people are hopeful to meet someone special or discouraged by the reminder of their lonely status. Dating couples are excited by a future promise or affirmed of an uncertainty in the relationship. Married couples renew their love or weary of the federal obligation. Although moral conclusions can easily be drawn in the above examples, one point is made clear. We often think of only ourselves, and our own relationships during this holiday of love.
This is why we choose to celebrate our Valentine’s Day each year at the Luke 14 Banquet at Seacoast Church. This red carpet event invites as its guests of honor anyone suffering from a physical or mental disability and their families and caretakers. It is a humbling experience to serve others in any capacity, especially people whose daily lives are often filled with more challenges than many of us know or understand. And yet we all have in common the same love for Christ. Please enjoy the smiles of our brothers and sisters from this Valentine’s Day.
