This week’s text is the introduction to Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth. Paul identifies himself and expresses gratitude. In doing so, Paul reminds his audience of our unity in Christ Jesus.
As we begin a new year and new century, we explore the beginning of Jesus’ ministry. As we consider Matthew’s text in Sunday’s worship, note the opening of the heavens, the presence of the Spirit of God, and the voice from the heavens.
