A Fool’s Hope – Third Sunday of Lent – 2018

Download: Audio Notes

1 Corinthians 1:18-25

This week we consider Paul’s teaching on God’s weakness and foolishness as found in 1 Corinthians 1:18-25. We reflect on what power and authority look like according to the world’s standards. And, we wrestle with with power and authority look like in the symbol of the cross. What does Paul mean when he says that the cross is a stumbling block; that it is foolishness? What does it look like for us to have a foolish hope in God and humanity?
