Keep on forgiving, a reflection on Matthew 18:21-22
Jesus had strong words for his disciples. Look back at 18:6-9 for the imprecation against the strong interfering with the humble. He commanded them to seek the ones who stray and to bring them back into the fold (10-15). But, what happens when that sheep is...

question arising from my reading 2 Corinthians 1:1-11
In verse 4, we are told that God comforts us in all our trouble so that we can comfort other people who are in every kind of trouble. I'm wondering now how often I make this connection in my own life. Why do I think God offers me comfort?

Varieties of Gifts, a Reflection on 1 Corinthians 12:1-13
Look back at the first chapter of Corinthians--Paul has heard that the congregation has divided into groups and the groups are not getting along. The more things change .... you know the rest. Paul continues to lecture and warn and remind them of what they ...

1 Corinthians 15:1-26
Paul reminds the Corinthians the message he terms of first importance: Christ died, was buried, was raised, and appeared to witnesses including Paul himself. Paul has received this gospel and is passing it on to the Corinthians. His knowledge is based on ex...

Knowing Fully, a Reflection on 1 Corinthians 13:12-13
How do we know that God loves us? Is it because of something we have read? Or, is it because of something we have witnessed? Or, is it because of something that has happened to us? Or, something that we have witnessed ourselves doing? How do we know that Go...

Don't be afraid, a reflection on John 14:25-27
When they had asked him to show them the Father, Jesus told them they had already been able to see the Father. He added "Even if you don't believe my words, you've got my works to convince you." Believe what you have heard me say. Or, believe what I have sa...

1 Corinthians 12:1-13
Different people have different talents, Paul told them. It's still true. For example, I cannot sing, but I like to stand in front of a room full of people and talk. Paul lists several gifts that the Spirit has given to different church members. Moreover, e...

Reactions to the Pentecost Surprise, a Reflection on Acts 2:1-4 (5-13)
The Holy Spirit appeared suddenly, loudly, and effectively. The reaction was mixed. Some were bewildered, amazed, astonished. Even when they found themselves able to understand in their own languages what the recipients were saying, the first witnesses eith...

The First Commandment, a Reflection on Mark 12:28-34
When a scribe asked Jesus which commandment is the most important of all. Jesus responded by quoting Deuteronomy 6:4-5 and Leviticus 19:18. He has been quoting Scripture to his opponents over and over. And although some have not been very happy with him abo...

Get over yourself and get over them, too, a Reflection on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
If we were compiling a manual on congregational development, We could file this passage under the heading Building & Maintenance.  If your group wants to stay together and stay healthy while together, then some attributes are necessary.  Love and tolerance....
