Pentecost 15 – The Song of Solomon is a series of love poems, of two young people in an idealised spring time. It is a passionate description of physical love and romantic longing, with body and soul united in love – flesh and blood are one. In the Hebrew text it is part of the wisdom lierature, placed right in the middle to emphasis its central importance. Human intimacy is a window into a deeper understanding of God's love for us. We need to hear this Song of Songs – the horrors of human perversion of love must be continually challenged by its true expression as a part of God-given humanity.
Song of Solomon 2: 8-13
