Valentine's Day: The Roman's celebrated the day we know as Valentine's Day in drunken orgies and sadistic fertility ceremonies. Pope Gelasius I tried to tidy things up by associating the festival with St. Valentine who was martyred for his faith in the 3rd Century. These days, public response to the day is split between spending lots of money on a special someone and celebrating SAD (Single Awareness Day).
So what's a thoughtful Christian to do with this mixed up and culturally co-opted day? Come hear Bruxy Cavey's take on Valentine's Day and other strange dimensions of following Jesus in the 21st Century.
