I'm taking a break from reflecting on the Revised Common Lectionary. Instead, I'm reading the Apocrypha for a while.

Live in Peace? If, Only a Reflection on 2 Corinthians 13:11-13

What an appropriate text for preachers to consider as they reflect on the annual conference they just attended. Read verses 1-10, as well. Paul said, "Some of you think that the rest of you are not thinking and living and talking as Christians should. You think you get the message much better than the others do and you are pretty open about your disdain for them."

Think back over the resolutions and debate about them at conference.

Paul's instructions to the fractious Corinthians seem, to me, to be really hard to follow: "Agree with one another and live in peace."

Yet, how else can Christians be Christian?
