Questions for Discussion:
1. Are there divisions in the congregation of which you are a part? What is at their roots?
2. What do you make of Paul’s claim that the cross of Christ is in some fashion or other a basic criterion of meaning and truth?
3. How would you analyze the ways in which your Church community divides along lines of status or wealth? Are such divisions a major element in the life of the community?
4. Do we share Paul’s perspective that there is a dramatic difference between “revelation” and the world that we confront every day? What is the relationship between Christ and culture?
