William Sloane Coffin, the great 20th-century preacher once said, "I think, therefore I am? Nonsense! I love, therefore I am," putting love at the center of our humanity. This week we continue on our journey with Paul's first letter to the Corinthians who wrote some of the most beautiful words about love in the 13th chapter. If you have time this week, read that chapter and ponder its meaning. Love will be our focus for our worship on Sunday.
Please call or email the Office if you want more information.
