“Agápē,” by Paul F. Lenzi

Poet Paul F. Lenzi has written a particularly nice piece entitled “Agape.”  It reminds me of what Dr. Cain taught us in Introduction to Christian Theology so many years ago at Mary Washington College.

I thought I remembered learning about three types of love delineated by basic Christian philosophy: Agape, Philia and … Eros?  But tonight this newfangled Internet thingy is telling me that there was a fourth — “Storge,” which was familial or empathetic love?  (That class was 23 years ago, I think.)

Anyway, enjoy Mr. Lenzi’s poem at this link to his blog, “Poesy plus Polemics,” right here:

Agápē.”
