1 Corinthians 13 and You

Go beyond the ceremony

Verses from this chapter are often read at ceremonies for weddings and funerals/memorials. Unfortunately it stops there.  These powerful words are printed in the wedding program or funeral card and used only as familiar words for the event.  Once the day is over, the sound advice from 1 Corinthians 13 is usually put away and forgotten until the next ceremony.

We show you how to make this chapter an every day part of your self-care and guidebook for your relationships.

1 Corinthians 13 is relevant now more than ever

These ancient words written by Paul close to 2,000 words ago.  He wrote them to members of a church he helped start in Corinth, Greece as they struggled to find their way.  His words are just as relevant today as they were back then – if not more.  We are here to show you why they are so important and how you can incorporate them into your life and relationships.
