For a certain kind of person knowing things is really important, in the spirit of full disclosure, I am one of these people. This is fine, most of the time, the difficulty comes when they make the leap from “knowing things” to having to be correct. One of the most important, and hardest, lessons I had to learn was: “You can be right and still be wrong.”
This Sunday’s sermons are about how, according to St. Paul, love is superior to knowledge. They talk about food and idols but, as I read in a book this week, the details of this part of 1 Corinthians are about as irrelevant to a 21st century person as can be imagined. The principles in this passage are timeless and as important now as they were a couple of thousand years ago.
Announcement: I will be away the next two Sundays so there will be no blog posts until February 18, the first Sunday in Lent.
