In a 2012 auction, the painting catalogue, Sotheby’s, sold an oil painting named Saint Jerome, attributed to the 16th-century artist Parmigianino, for $842,500.

A God Ready to Forgive. What wonderful words to hear? Ezra confesses that God is always ready to forgive and then describes the character of God that makes him ready to forgive. The following words are some of the most comforting words found in our Bibles. We so often struggle with God’s love. When we sin – we wonder if God loves us. When we suffer – we wonder if God loves us. Yet this passage should clear any doubt. God always loves and forgives those who seek his name.

We all experience painful situations in life. Sometime of our own making, sometime as a result of what others do to us, and sometimes simply as part of the human condition. These situations can rob us of joy. No matter the origin, they are painful and frustrating. But God can provide us grace to thrive during these times and peace to comfort us. He can replace our gloominess with joy. Listen as Pastor Leger begins our study on the Book of Philippians.
