Many of the problems and questions the Corinthian church was dealing with are still present in the church today. Churches today still struggle with divisions, with immorality, and with the use of spiritual gifts. The Book of 1 Corinthians very well could have been written to the church today and we would do well to heed Paul’s warnings and apply them to ourselves. Despite all the rebukes and corrections, 1 Corinthians brings our focus back to where it should be—on Christ. Genuine Christian love is the answer to many problems (chapter 13). A proper understanding of the resurrection of Christ, as revealed in chapter 15, and thereby a proper understanding of our own resurrection, is the cure for what divides and defeats us.

Today we had Iain Cunningham talking to us on 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 entitled "Christians Belong to God!.
Watch as Iain unpacks these verses for us and how we can apply them to our lives.
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
What are we building our lives on?

Today we had Mark Hodgkinson with us talking on the theme "What are we building our lives on?". Using pictures from the C of E syllabus for RE in primary schools, we had a whistle-stop tour through the Christian faith, which caused us all to think as the pictures came to us jumbled and we needed to put them in the correct order.
As you watch would you be able to put them in the correct order? We hope it comes across well on screen.

Today we started a new series looking at the book of 1 Corinthians which is a letter written by the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth.
Geoff Bennett spoke to us from chapter 1 to chapter 2 verse 5, starting with an introduction and then reminding us that we are the Church and the Church belongs to God - it is His Church, despite us being flawed, weak, and often in a state of helplessness.
