His Love Endures Forever! (Columbia Heights)

Psalm 107  1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;    his love endures forever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story—    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,3 those he gathered from the lands,    from east and west, from north and south.[a 4 Some wandered in desert wastelands,    finding no way to a city where they could settle.5 They were hungry and thirsty,    and their lives ebbed away.6 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,    and he delivered them from their distress.7 He led them by a straight way    to a city where they could settle.8 Let them…

Loving People Who Drive You Nuts! (Downtown Minneapolis)

1 Corinthians 13 13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.…

This man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, 28 and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the Book of Isaiah the prophet. 29 The Spirit told Philip, “Go to that chariot…

Reborn to Love (Lowertown St. Paul

1 Peter 1:21-25 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God. 22 Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.23 For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God. 24 For, “All people are like grass,    and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;the grass…
