This week, we begin a short series hearing a few sections of the apostle Paul’s second letter to the church at Corinth. This letter clearly reveals that Paul and the Corinthian church have some issues of distrust and mutual pain. Yet, instead of being defensive, in 2 Corinthians 5:6-17, Paul chooses the path of vulnerability, opening himself to them. Perhaps he gains confidence from the fact that we are “well known to God.” What is there to fear?
