For Your Pondering...

This past week we talked about 1 Cor 10-11.16. We focused primarily on two things: 1) We need to be wary of how we are entangled with the world because being improperly connected to the "idols" out there can make us look bad in non-Christians' eyes and can hurt the unity that we share with one another; and 2) When we worship we should do so in ways which are appropriate (especially when leading) because we don't want to hinder the Gospel.

So what do you think?

Are there still idols in our world and are they empowered by evil forces as Paul says the ones in his world were? So what are some of these idols and how can we avoid them?

And (this one can just be rhetorical if you'd like!) are there ways in which you have distracted attention away from the Gospel? I'm sure that we all have at some point. So the question remains: what can we do as a faith community to help one another ensure that the Gospel is unhindered?

Don't forget that this Sunday Andrew will be leading us in a fun review of what we have talked about so far. So if you'd like read (or skim!) 1 Corinthians 1-11.16.

Grace and peace.
