In his letters to the people of Corinth, St. Paul encouraged them to “flee idolatry” in order to live with strong faith. One modern-day, significant form of idolatry involves thinking of oneself as better than others due to money, educational achievement, or social position. Churches that run on such thinking hit a spiritual bankruptcy, which depletes all who participate. Church, at its best, widens the circles of our lives to radically welcome all people in a transforming, living tradition of compassion, service and empowerment. This kind of beloved community nourishes us to stretch, grow, and enjoy beyond our expectations.
