Christians in Conflict
1 Corinthians 6:1-8
Jesus spends a good amount of time explaining the right way to address conflict in the church.  Most of it gets ignored.  This is certainly the case for the church in Corinth.  In their case, and ours, failure to live at peace in the church is ultimately a failure to adopt and enjoy the values of the world yet to come.  A church filled with the work of the holy spirit, and peacemaking, is a slice of heaven.

    Pride: A Little Leaven
    1 Corinthians 5:1-8
    Believers have a sexual ethic, but as Paul begins to engage the church on this, he really has to address a bigger underlying issue: pride.  Pride, in it's essence, cannot acknowledge wrongdoing.  Pride even keeps us from seeing our own sin.

    Fatherhood
    1 Corinthians 4:8-16
    Fatherhood is a complicated thing. It begins for most of us as terror. Then it moves to love, protection, devotion, and (hopefully) leading our children, but along with that comes anxiety, depression, and even rejection. This morning we will look at several of the ways Paul's relationship with Corinth parallels our own experience as fathers

    Know Thyself
    1 Corinthians 2:10-13
    Ancient Greek philosophers spent a tremendous amount of self reflection. The axiom know thyself is ancient, and yet it still sways over philosophers as both a warning and a mission. Paul says that the reason Christians are a mystery to others is that they can never truly understand what motivates us - our life, our code of ethics, and even our reward. This is because we are not only moved by our own spirit, but by the spirit of God.

    Foolish God; Powerful Cross
    1 Corinthians 1:18-25
    The church at Corinth gives me hope, because it reminds me that the church has always been struggling to live up to the extraordinary truth of the gospel. Paul begins his book by reminding them that there is no wisdom greater than the foolishness of the cross. And only in the cross of Christ will we find our true value and purpose.

    All I Ever Wanted
    Psalm 126
    When getting married, or if you ever want to be, what do you hope for? I think we have an idea of happiness or a sense of deep contentment or joy. This feeling is often marred by reality and we might think that experiencing joy is a bridge too far. Can we get to that place? If we have wandered, can we find it again?

    Stay Tuned
    Hebrews 3:7-14
    Scripture teaches that the marriage relationship is of great significance. The ethics that direct husbands and wives reflect a high standard, as the Church submits to Christ…as Christ loves the Church. These statements must guide our relationships; sometimes new habits must be established.

    Marriage in the Key of We
    Ephesians 5:21-33
    Over the next several weeks, the Sunday morning lessons will present a melody of marriage that is different from what society plays. Every time you follow a biblical pattern for your life, it works. When you don’t, things become chaotic. That is because most marriages are in the Key of Me. The Bible pattern shows something different. It shows a melody in the Key of We. Today’s lesson: “I am Third.”
