Week 1 of our series in The Letters of John. Today we focus on the opening verses of 1st John, written about 50-60 years after Jesus' ascension by one of the last remaining eyewitnesses at that time of Jesus' life and ministry. These verses show us what John considered important to share with his fellow believers - testifying to the reality of Jesus, who he saw with his eyes and touched with his hands, to proclaim the eternal life through Him, that we may live in fellowship with God, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and each other.

Part 8 of our Colossians series. The book of Philemon is a personal letter from Paul, written and carried at the same time as the book of Colossians, addressing a situation of slavery and debt. Debt is considered bad however, often we don't owe enough of a debt - of love. Paul brings a clear example of how we should and can radically love others. Love does no wrong to a neighbor.
