When We Nourish: Architectural Sermons, A 2023 Perspective

1 Corinthians 3:1-9             And so, brothers and sisters, I could not speak to you as spiritual people but rather as fleshly, as infants in Christ.  I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for solid food.

For as long as there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not fleshly and behaving according to human inclinations? For when one says,…
