b'Love IsA Yearlong Experiment of Living Out 1 Corinthians 13 LoveKim SorrelleEngage with a love that transcends social experiments and leads to a radically transformed lifeE vennon-ChristiansarefamiliarwiththeLoveChapterof 1Corinthians, read at weddings, painted on decorative signs, and preached regularly from the pulpit. Love is patient, love is kind, love is . The words are so familiar they almost lack meaning, a Christianese version of live, laugh, love. But what happens when these verses are taken seriously? What would it take for someone to live out the Love Chapter as literally as possible?That was the question Kim Sorrelle set out to answer during her yearlong experiment. Using 1Corinthians 13 as a road map, she focused on one phrase at a time, seeking to understand its true meaning and how it could motivate every daily action. And she didnt just look at the best-known parts of the passage but also the parts we dont think too deeply about: love does not boast, does not dishonor others, doesnt keep a record of wrongs, and more.In her attempts to live the Love Chapter to the letter, Kim journeyed all the way to Haiti, where she met people who both tested and displayed love to its limits. From irritating employees tosexistshort-termmissionariestocurse-wieldingwomento the profoundly kind nuns, her encounters are filled with rueful self-reflection and comical commentary, as well as a new under-standing of the nuances and power of true love in action.Kims transformation into someone who truly loves like Jesus willchallengereaderstothinkmoredeeplyabouthowthey can manifest love in their own lives and will reveal the power of Christlike devotion that is unwearied and humble, contented and forgiving.
