Letters to the Church: Corinth (Round 1)

This week's letter is the second longest of those attributed to Paul in the New Testament: 1 Corinthians. Reading it through this week will take a little more time, but I still highly encourage you to take the time to do so! Here's how I would recommend breaking it up, if you want to read a chunk each day.

Tuesday: Chapters 1-4
Wednesday: Chapters 5-7
Thursday: Chapters 8-10
Friday: Chapters 11-14
Saturday: Chapters 15-16

This follows the breakdown of chapters in this week's video from The Bible Project (found below or at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yiHf8klCCc4) and in this week's "map" (found at the bottom of this page--click to enlarge--and also in this week's bulletin). I think this is a great, really clear way of thinking about the message of 1 Corinthians and how it teaches us to deal with hot-button and potentially divisive issues in our community today. And goodness, don't we need to learn about that?

See you Sunday!
