2 Corinthians - God is still Speaking!

Bring your friends. The Rev. Dean Warburton will be our discussion leader and guide.
In 2 Corinthians, Paul responds to criticism of his preaching and teaching, as
well as his leadership. At least some in Corinth were more impressed by other
preachers and teachers who pointed early and often to their own incredible
spiritual experiences. Paul spoke of himself in less glowing terms. He
recounted not his achievements, but his struggles and even his failures. Why?
Because he believed that talking about one’s glowing resume turned faith into
an instrument of personal success, shifting the focus from God to ourselves.
Books are available at the Church Office or at the class sessions.
