Series: A Glorious Mess

A Glorious Mess: Lessons from the Church at Corinth

Authentic life with Jesus is both glorious and messy. It’s anything but this dry, innocuous thing we call religion or the amorphous “spirituality” that the latest celebrity is promoting. We’ll take a look at the Church in Corinth — real people in the midst of authentic transformation — people who were definitely not THERE yet. Their “issues,” are our “issues.” Separated by two thousand years of history, but united by one large and permanent reality — though we are a mess, God’s glory remains, restoring and working through his Church — a glorious, world-changing mess.
