Shit Got Real: Reconsidering 1 Corinthians 13 in Light of Labor, Butt Paste, and Dirty Diapers


1 Corinthians 13 is one of the most recognizable passages in the New Testament. Used frequently as a wedding text, this seemingly romantic ode is far more far-reaching and complex than your average wedding sermon. While lyrically and aesthetically beautiful, Paul's words weren't affirming a way of life the Corinthians were already living out. It was a call to action. It was an instruction on how the community might disarm discord and move into the future. In this episode, Hannah and Eric reconsider and reclaim Paul's letter and put it in conversation with the recent birth of their son.
