Week One — Building Up in a World that Tears Down

Gifted to Serve, Empowered to Love

"I have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live. Yet not I, but Christ lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself over on my behalf." —Galatians 2:20

As I shared with you in the video, I am so thrilled to be on this journey with you! God has been using 1 Corinthians 13 in my life in a significant way this past year and I'm eager to walk with you through it. I hope that you'll jump right in this first week on the blog and interact with the following questions:

What is your name and where are you from? Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.

What do you think will be the most challenging thing about learning to love like Jesus loves?

Once you've answered the questions, take a minute to comment on someone else's response. Maybe you'll find someone from the same part of the country as you. Perhaps you'll want to chime in to talk with someone who is facing similar challenges. Don't be shy! Go ahead and encourage someone and make some new friends! I know it seems strange, but over time we really do get to know one another although we live in different parts of the country and the world. 

I'll be checking in on the blog throughout the day and you may also see my friend Mary Ann welcoming you—she is like a right arm to me and helps me with the blog studies as well as my local studies at church. 

So looking forward to hearing from you!

Love,

pam :)
