The focus of early church services was Jesus Christ, through the sharing of Communion. But in Corinth, the focus of the Lord’s Table was selfishness and pride. Dru looks at what division does to our focus and invites us all to remember Christ, rather than ourselves.
This Sunday, we had a special service, following Christ’s command to wash each other’s feet. Along with that, we had an extended time of testimonies and sharing in communion. Here are the reflections from Dru and Elv, on the bread and wine respectively.

I really appreciate the encouragement given, and apologize for my lack of clarity and accuracy. Last week, I clarified on the two points I got wrong, which you can listen to below:

Drawing from the life of David, LaMar shares several heart characteristics that are needed to draw someone after God. A person who has a heart like God’s prepares their heart, meditates in their heart, rests in their heart, and rejoices in their heart. They also have a broken and contrite heart, reflecting God’s heart over sin.

What does the practice of covering one’s head have to do with spiritual warfare or the church? To some, 1 Corinthians 11 is a confusing explanation of a cultural practice, largely irrelevant to us today. To others, it may be a familiar practice, but the meaning is unclear. In this message, Dru explains that the covering of the head is a timeless practice, providing pictures of profound, eternal truths.
