The Body Analogy

In 1 Corinthians 12:12-31a, Paul seems to contradict himself. We have long understood Paul’s body analogy to mean there is a hierarchy in the church. But is that what Paul means? Is Paul even the first person to use this analogy? What is Paul REALLY saying? This sermon considers these questions, reminds us that our differences come from the one Spirit, and celebrates the beauty we find in our diversity.
