Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.” Corinthians 13:4-7
The Bible says many things about marriage. But actually living it can, at times, prove to be one of life’s most challenging tasks. That’s why St. John’s Parish welcomes couples to join its members and its leaders at the next Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend, which takes place Oct. 27 – 29, in Ankeny.
The church encourages couples to discover more ways to open their marriage to God’s plan. Register or contact Roger and Marsha Luensmann at (563) 927-4352 for more information. Other resources include the church website at www.iowa-wwme.org, or visit the church at 24043 302nd Place.
