Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson continue their discussion of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
When we proclaim our faith in the words of the Nicene Creed, formulated by the bishops gathered at the Council of Nicea in AD 325, we confess that we believe in the one, holy, Catholic, and apostolic Church. In the passage weʼre studying today, St. Paul proclaims that the gifts of the Holy Spirit were given for building up the body of Christ, which St. Paul identifies as the Church. When we look around us today, however, at adjacent street corners in almost any city, in the pages of listings in any phone book, and in the news when we hear of Christians acting anyway but holy or united, what has gone wrong? There are lots of answers to this, but weʼll discuss a few of them today on Deep in Scripture.
