Whose We Are

The book of I Thessalonians, one of Paul’s earliest letters, continues to speak with profound cultural relevance today. Questions of identity, authority, and purity are at the forefront of the church’s engagement with our surrounding culture in our day. Who am I? Where do I turn to get my final answers on the things that matter most? Who should I pattern my life after? Paul addresses those questions in loving and timely ways in the letter he wrote to the church in Thessalonica - and to us.
