In this short video, Karoline Lewis provides insight on the Apostle Paul as a pastor who cares deeply about communities of faith that are experiencing transition and conflict.

“I think sometimes we don’t know what to make of Paul or what to do with Paul,” says Lewis in the video. What we do is forget that these were struggling congregations that were experiencing real issues. “Paul writes these letters with those issues in mind, so they’re very particular, they’re situational, they’re occasional. I sometimes like to think that Paul writes these as a word on target.”
