Testament Tuesday

This week we read Paul's letters to the Corinthians.  I was telling Trent last night how I wasn't comfortable with Paul's tone in those letters and I am pretty sure I would have been one of the people in the early church criticizing him.  That led me to ponder the actions of the apostles and the early church.  They weren't conventional or politically correct like we like our churches today.  I have a feeling if Paul landed here in 2010 he wouldn't be wearing a suit and tie and standing behind a podium.  Do we look more like the opponents of the early church than we should as we look with a critical eye at the methods of churches around us?  Just a thought.

On another note...
Jack is having surgery tomorrow to repair his spinal cord.  We will be going in VERY early and I think surgery is somewhere mid morning.  Please pray for him and for the doctors.  We believe strongly that God has guided our steps to this point and plans to do something incredible through this.  Thanks again for walking this road with us.
