The Five Love Languages

Leader: Alina Klimchuk

Location: Online Only (Russian)

Time: Friday 1:00 pm EST

Class code: SPR-LLR

In my class, we’ll read Gary Chapman’s book and learn 5 unique facets of expressing love. Chapman has this to say how the 5 love languages are Christ-centered: “… all of these love languages flow from God’s love. He speaks all five languages fluently. The Bible is filled with ‘Words of Affirmation’ where God verbalizes His love to us. Christmas reminds us that He gave us the greatest gift of all when He sent His son… What about ‘Acts of Service’? That is what the cross is all about. Christ paid our penalty. Follow the life of Jesus and you see Him speaking the love language of ‘Physical Touch’. And for all who want it, God is ready to spend ‘Quality Time’. Turn your thoughts toward him and you will find his thoughts are already on you. God is love.”

The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman in Russian

«Пять языков любви» (на русском)
Лидер: Алина Климчук
Только онлайн
Пятница 13:00 EST

В нашем классе мы прочтем книгу Гэри Чепмена и изучим пять уникальных аспектов выражения любви. Существует пять языков любви, на которых каждый из нас разговаривает индивидуально. Это качественное время провождения, слова одобрения, получения подарков, акты служения и физическое прикосновения. Если мы научимся понимать язык любви наших возлюбленных, то откроем истинный смысл любви в служении, а не просто в влюбленности или страсти, как считают сегодня люди. Гери Чепмен христианин, вот что он пишет о себе : ,,Способность любить, в особенности тогда, когда твой супруг тебя не любит, может для некоторых людей казаться невозможным. Такая любовь, возможно, потребует привлечения всех наших духовных ресурсов. Несколько лет назад, когда я сам находился в борьбе со своими семейными проблемами, я вновь почувствовал, что мне необходим Бог. Исследуя исторические данные рождения Христа, Его жизни, смерти и воскресения, я пришёл к выводу, что Его смерть это выражение любви, а воскресение – мощное свидетельство его могущества. Я стал истинно “верующим”. Я посвятил свою жизнь Ему и обнаружил, что Он обеспечивает внутреннюю духовную энергию для любви даже тогда, когда любовь безответна. Я призываю вас к тому, чтобы вы предприняли собственные исследования жизни того, кто, умирая, молился за тех, кто его убивал: “Отец, прости им, ибо они не ведают, что творят”. Это – окончательное выражение любви,,.

Time: Thursday 7:00 am EST

Class code: SPR-LAK

The 2nd King says that to have a successful, happy blessed marriage, wives should respect their husbands, and husbands need to love their wives. However, can I respect my future husband even when he is acting unreasonably? When you get blessed, give birth, and raise children, it isn’t easy to always be a loving and respectful mother. What should I do then? Let’s think about it together! Let’s study the words of the Bible about love and respect, cry and laugh together, and be filled with the Holy Spirit of God. It is highly recommended for those who are planning to get blessed soon.

By studying the Book of Matthew, I hope to open the gate to the Bible for those who find the Bible too difficult to approach. The Book of Matthew, written for the Jews, gives a good understanding of the cultural background of the Hebrews. Also, I hope the Holy Spirit will guide us to find what Father has in common with Jesus, so we can realize the true meaning of Father who was born from the seed of God as the Messiah.
