June 25: Global Beatles Day

On June 25, 1967, the Beatles performed “All You Need Is Love” in a TV special seen by close to 400 million viewers. The song was the UK’s contribution to the  first ever live global television link, Our World, and quickly became a favorite worldwide.

“This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome.”

1 John 5:2-3
