urgent and compassionate

The endings of many of the letters in the New Testament are inspiring. The last chapters are invariably crammed with a mix of urgent theology and compassionate personal greeting. This week’s morning bell will take as it’s starting point the last chapter of 1 Thessalonians. It's worth spending time with this letter from Paul, Silvanus and Timothy to the church in Thessalonica - it's probably one of the earliest of Christian writings.
