"I am testing the genuineness of your love." (2 Corinthians 8:8)
The Corinthian church was one that was dealing with a great deal of conflict. They didn't all see things the same way. They didn't all practice the same things. They were struggling with divisions within the church, and it was starting to show. When Paul wrote to them, he tried to help them steer through the messiness of it all and remain bound to Christ as one people. When we look out our window today, we see a world that doesn't look all that different from the church Paul was writing to: splintered, divided, contentious, and messy. It is becoming an increasingly frightening place.
On Sunday, we talked about Paul's posture with the Corinthian church and how the wisdom of his effort to stay engaged and remain in relationship with them is a call upon us today. I believe God is calling Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church into a particular kind of life and commitment together. I believe God is calling us to own the fact that we are a purple church committed to staying engaged with God, one another, and the world around us.
When you have a few minutes, I invite you to listen to Sunday's sermon
and learn more about it.
