What is Love?
Question: What is love?
Jeff Swartz: Love, the love of a father for his children is different than the love of a husband for his wife, of a congregant for his god, but I have the joy of all of those and it’s not like pornography, like I’ll tell you when I find it. It’s almost palpable. It’s almost sensory. There is an unconditionalness to the love that I pray would become the standard for the love of every parent for his or her child, not unconditional in a blind sense, but unconditional in it comes from an infinite place and it’s inexhaustible. The love of a husband for his wife is a mixture of awe and fear and joy and the love of the congregant for the divine is silent and stupefied and breathless and so overwhelming that it goes beyond words.
