Our scripture reading today is from Paul’s second letter to the community in Corinth. It’s wonderfully and typically Pauline in all sorts of ways. It’s in this passage that Paul talks about the “thorn in his flesh,” that unknown affliction or malady that companioned him all his life. As he grapples with that particular “truth,” he explores the notion of God’s strength as it makes itself known in our human weakness, inviting us into that powerful and profound reflection along with him. Where and how does Paul’s experience connect to your own?
Today is also Communion Sunday! If you are worshiping at home today, you’re invited to gather your own elements, bread and juice, to share in Communion toward the end of the service.
