Josh looks at part of Paul's first letter to the Corinthians -- a church that was grappling with divisions. Instead of drawing hard lines, Paul calls them to unity by focusing them on the simple truths of Jesus: He died for our sins. He was buried. He was raised on the third day. And He appeared to many. In a way, Paul is following Jesus' example by not drawing hard lines, as we see in how Jesus handled the crowd wanting to stone an adultress in the Gospel of John. The worship journey for this week: "Becoming a community that leans into the common grounds of our core beliefs about Jesus Christ. That Christ died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again." Josh shared this quote from Lewis Galloway during the message: "Whenever Christ turns a life around, heals a marriage, transitions a bitter heart, forgives a sinner, teaches a fearful heart to love, or shows a greedy person how to give, there is a witness ready to take the stand to tell the good news of God's grace." Luke 4:18-19; 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; John 8:1-11.
