Dwelling in the Word for 2017

As a community, Bering Drive selects a passage of scripture to meditate on throughout our year together. Our “Dwelling in the Word” passage for 2017 is 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 as we focus on God’s love that we practice in patience and kindness.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude. It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
