February - Music for All Sorts of Love

February is a month devoted to love. But there's so much more to love than red hearts, chocolates, fluttery stomachs!

In 1960, author, philosopher, and Oxford professor C.S. Lewis wrote a book called The Four Loves. In it, he outlines 4 types of love with roots in Greek philosophy and based on how we bond with others. Here's a summary. For more info, here's a link:

  • Storge: (storgē, Greek: στοργή) is an empathy bond. It is liking someone through the fondness of familiarity, family members or people who relate in familiar ways that have otherwise found themselves bonded by chance.

  • Philia: (Greek: φιλία) is a friend bond. It is the love between friends as close as siblings in strength and duration.

  • Eros: (erōs, Greek: ἔρως) is a romantic bond. For Lewis, it was love in the sense of "being in love" or "loving" someone.

  • Agape: (agápē, Greek: ἀγάπη) is an unconditional, God-like bond. It is the love that exists regardless of changing circumstances.

Our upcoming SipNSing performance class on Sunday, February 27, 3pm (Mnt time), will feature songs expressing these 4 types of love. Contact caroljoye@sing4health.com if you'd like to join us via Zoom.
