Sunday Reflection: Four mercies

This morning I'm giving the sermon at First Covenant Church here in Minneapolis (810 South 7th Street, 9:30 AM). The text is Matthew 5:7: "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy."

It's a tough passage in some ways; is it an offer of a quid pro quo, or something deeper?

I'll talk about four kinds of mercies that we can show:

-- forgiveness of those who are repentant
-- forgiveness of those who are not repentant
-- forgiveness of God
-- forgiveness of ourselves.

It's going to be quite a morning!

If the sermon is recorded, could we get a copy
