Message from the Monthly Flyer from February 2012


Also here in Germany, Valentine's day on the 14. February has become more significant. The central thought on this day is "love". It is a word which is simply said, but from society to society, and even from individual to individual, love is defined and demonstrated in life in different ways. In this monthly newsletter we do not want stick to a particular definition, but rather we want the Bible to speak for itself:

Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part. But when that which is perfect has come, then that which is in part will be done away.

When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1. Corinthians 13:4-13 sw
