Mercy

Building Healthy Families: Saint Peter compares the suffering we endure in this life to a refiner’s fire, working to purify our faith. Lutheran Family Service, through its Christ-centered counseling services, seeks to help people understand the difficulties in their life through the eyes of faith. If you or someone you know is in the midst of unbearable suffering, please contact your local LFS office. Lutheran Family Service of Iowa (515) 251-4900

Life Quote: “God gives us a model for affecting the lives of others. It follows the order of creation and is gender-specific. You can find that model in Titus 2:1-8. A young pastor named Titus and his congregation used this model to affect the lives of others—one man, one woman, one child, one family, one neighbor, one community at a time. They mentored generations of hope.” Linda D. Bartlett, www.titus2-4life.org – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life – www.lutheransforlife.org
