The Revolutionary Love

Love is more than a rush of feeling. Love is sweet labor: fierce, bloody, imperfect, and life giving – a choice we make again and again. 

Love is not any one emotion. Love is all our emotions: Joy is the gift of love. Grief is the price of love. Anger is what we harness to protect that which we love.

Revolutionary Love is the choice to labor for others, for opponents, and for ourselves – to transform the world around us, and within us.

Can be Love revolutionary?

The Revolutionary Love envisions a world where love is a public ethic and shared practice in our lives and politics. We generate tools to equip people to practice the ethic of love in the fight for social justice.

We have all known the long loneliness, and we have learned that the only solution is love.

Today, may you know that you are beloved. You are not alone. We grieve with you, we ache with you, we rise with you, we are by your side.

We love you!

“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love”

Dr. Martin Luther King

Who embodies revolutionary love to you? Who is the first person you thought of, and why? What do they do? How do they show up? How do they make you feel? What do you want the world to know about them?
