God is love? Maybe
What does love mean to you?
That will be the subject of the next week's luncheon of the Newport-Mesa-Irvine Interfaith Council. It is being held June 11 at Orange Coast Unitarian Universalist Church, 2845 Mesa Verde East, Costa Mesa.
"This is our annual round-table luncheon where we discuss with members of a variety of faith communities 'the question,'" said the Rev. Julie Elkins, council president and minister at First United Methodist Church of Costa Mesa. The full question is "What does love mean to you, to your faith community?"
The Rev. Sian Wiltshire of Orange Coast Unitarian Universalist Church will present the question to the attendees and help to focus the discussion. The day begins at 11:45 a.m. with registration, then continues with a noon buffet luncheon and program from 12:45 to 1:30. Reservations cost $12 and can be made at http://www.nmiinterfaith.org or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
