In the World–February 14, 2021

Download “In the World” for February 14, 2021 here.


On Valentine’s Day, we give thought to voicing our affection for our loved ones. Celebrity Peloton cycling instructor Ally Love recently got engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Andrew Haynes. He took her to one of her favorite places in the world, a beach in Mexico, and surprised her by dropping to one knee and proposing. When she said yes, the private fireworks display he had arranged was set off, and the couple are now planning their wedding.


When Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared first to the faithful women such as Mary Magdalene who had followed Him in His ministry. They first testified to the world of His resurrection, and they were effective communicators of the Lord’s victory over sin, death, and hell, supporting the advance of the kingdom of God.

  1. What’s the most extravagant or romantic way you’ve ever voiced your love to someone?
  2. Which is your favorite (or least favorite) thing about Valentine’s Day?
  3. What do you imagine it was like for the women who followed Jesus during His ministry?
