Paul and the Corinthians had a falling out.
It’s not gone well.
Paul is as human as any of us.
We are molded by the same Creator.
Conflict. Hurt. Polarization. Rejection.
These are the ways of humanity.
There is always a way forward. It is a way that follows Jesus through conflict, anger, hurt, polarization, sadness, and rejection.
God has a dream and a hope for us.
Embrace the dream.
Immerse yourselves in the waters of hope.
We follow the One whose expansive love is for black lives, trans lives, poor lives, straight lives, and immigrant lives.
Holy One, show us the way through.
Touch us at this hour. Move our hearts and our souls. Amen.
