Through Eyes of Love (ET: The Extra-Terrestrial)

Aug 21, 2022    Rev. Sarah Clark

ET is a different kind of alien movie. Instead of a movie that had to do with invasion and fear and protecting
earth from intruders from outerspace, this extra-terrestrial was a vulnerable little being who was awed and
delighted by the world he found himself in. He looked at the world with eyes of love and helped those close to him to see him and the world with eyes of love too. In John, the gospel-writer tells us that the God who
created the world (and us) in love took on flesh and came among us to show us what that love looked like with skin on. What would it look like for us to look at ourselves, at others, and at the world through Jesus’ eyes of love?
