Arete Morsching Scholarship in Memory of Kevin J. Morsching

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence (arête), if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” New Testament, Philippians, 4.8
