Holy Spirit Episcopal Church is very pleased to be engaged in four very specific ministries that channel our love for Christ and each other outward into our surrounding communities. Most have probably heard the word agape, but might not know exactly what it means in relation to the Episcopal Church. The base definition is:;/';"
Agape ( /ˈćɡəpiː/ or /əˈɡɑːpeɪ/; Classical Greek: ἀγάπη, agápē; Modern Greek: αγάπη [aˈɣapi]) is one of the Greek words translated into English as love, one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for mankind. Many have thought that this word represents divine, unconditional, self-sacrificing, active, volitional, and thoughtful love. Although the word does not have specific religious connotation, the word has been used by a variety of contemporary and ancient sources, including Biblical authors and Christian authors.
