St. Paul Trolls the Corinthians

A homily about collections, unrelated to any particular collection, based on 2nd Corinthians, chapter 8.

  • The background of Paul's Collection and the close of his third missionary journey.
  • Paul trolls the Corinthians with the Macedonians, and thus establishes precedent in Christian fundraising.
  • How Christians share what they have in different circumstances.
  • "Though the Messiah was rich, for your sake he became poor" (2Cor 8) <<< >>> "Though his nature was divine he emptied himself and took on the form of a slave" (Phlp 2)
