Valentine’s Day

Posted by on Feb 14, 2015 in Bridgehaven Team, Caroline von Helms | 0 comments

To be young, wealthy, in love-all in the third century, and to be a Christian. Such was young Valentine, he would consummate his great love by taking his love as his bride. Soon he would be wed, but his pleasurable orderly world came crashing down around him when the Roman emperor declared all Christians illegal citizens guilty of treason. All they had to do was say, ‘Caesar is Lord!” But all Valentine would say was “No, Jesus is Lord!” Rather than deny Christ young Valentine was arrested in the crackdown. In jail awaiting execution in the arena he wrote love letters to his girlfriend....
