Edmund Steimle: Love Never Fails

In his sermon on "one of the most magnificent passages about God ever written," 1 Corinthians 13, Lutheran preacher Edmund Steimle says there is a great deal of interest in religion of all sorts in the culture, radio, TV, films, magazines, all sorts of sects. Paul faced this in Corinth. Following this he wrote the 13th Chapter of Corinthians ending with "love never fails." Love is the only thing that truly lasts. Congregations in East Berlin facing terrible persecution still have faith in the cross as the means of love. Lent begins, and we need to know the love on a cross will not fail to be at the very heart and center of our religion.
