Sunday, February 18
Rev. Dr. Michelle Morris
Foolish Love Forgives
Matthew 5:21-24, 18:21-35
Looking at these 2 teachings about Jesus forgiving someone multiple times and the servant who does not forgive the debt of his fellow servant, we will start to understand how refusing to forgive is to continue to judge others and carry hate in our own hearts. This keeps us from being able to fully love.

Foolish Love Study Available
We will spend the season of Lent exploring the Foolish Love that Jesus calls us to share. Our church has produced a study guide, devotional, and videos to guide us through this season. Videos and electronic copies of the study guide and devotional can be found at our church's website by clicking the Foolish Love tab at the top. Printed copies of the devotional and study guide can be picked up on Sunday mornings or in the church office. Books are free, but if you wish to donate toward the cost of printing, each book costs approximately $6.50 to print.
