His steadfast love endures forever

Psalm 100. Print it, read it, love it, live it.

A Psalm for giving thanks.

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
 Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!

 Know that the Lord, he is God!
It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
and his courts with praise!
Give thanks to him; bless his name!

 For the Lord is good;
his steadfast love endures forever,
and his faithfulness to all generations.

Free Online New Testament Greek Course

Preaching from the Parables with Peter Grainger

.Here's a date to mark in your diary if you live within travelling distance of Edinburgh. Peter Grainger is leading a seminar on 'Preaching from the Parables' on Saturday 6 November at Charlotte Chapel.

Peter recently spoke to our church leaders about preaching from 2 Timothy 4, and we were greatly encouraged and challenged. I'm sure this will be a wonderful day for novice and experienced preachers alike.
