Essentials: The gifted community

Last Sunday, March 13, we reflected on Paul's promise that a Christian community is a richly endowed and gifted community. But what makes the gifting of a Christian community unique? How are we to understand the spiritual gifts God gives us? Are gifts circumstantial or continual? Natural or supernatural? Are some more important than others? So many questions but Paul is adamant that he does not want us to be uninformed about spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12.1). When we can a basic understanding than we can beware of the pitfalls that will undermine the variety, unity, and vitality that God's gifts offer us personally and as a community.
