West End United Methodist Church

The Importance of Being WE

Speakers:Shannon Baxter
Topics:Sunday service

We continue our trip through the Bible with today’s reading from 1 Corinthians.  Rev. Shannon Baxter, our Pastor of Congregational Connection, is preaching.  The text is Paul’s familiar comparison of the community of the church to the members of the body, an analogy that can surely be understood by anyone.  Historically, the Corinthian congregation must have had need of such encouragement to come together as one body, with each given unique gifts, not for the benefit of that person, but for the collective benefit of the group, the congregation, so that the Corinthian church would become what it was meant to be.  For us, this means realizing that our individual gifts should be identified, received and used in humility and that we are incomplete without the gifts of others.     (NOTE: Reflecting the importance of the Word, the video begins with the scripture, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
