Eros, Philos, and Agape

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

“Mary Worth” fans are the best.  I received the following email from Deborah K.

“Very touched by the different kinds of love mentioned in Mary Worth a couple days ago: Eros, philos and agape. I’ve experienced all three, and want to thank you for sharing the definition for each kind of love. I feel like Iris. Am seeking another passionate kind of love, but must realize I do have lots of friendships that are philos. Thank you.”
“And now these three remain:  faith, hope, and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” – 1 Corinthians 13:13
