Disciples of Love, Rev. Kent Matthies

In pandemic when times are tough, our faith provides a framework to focus our loves. In constructing our beautiful sanctuary in 1928 the congregation selected the following bible verse to engrave upon the altar: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy might and with all thy strength.  Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.”  Mark 12:30-31

How do you love God, the world, your neighbor, and yourself? When we stay strong as disciples of love, it gets us through and makes us stronger.
