Corinth to Athens-Day Eight

All things start winding down. This morning was an early morning with a 7:00 am departure from the boat. We had an early breakfast and immediately boarded our bus to travel to Corinth. Since it is a holiday, Peggy worked some magic to ensure we were able to see two of the museums today since they will be closed tomorrow. We visited the National Archaeological museum first and within one hour Peggy managed to give us the whirlwind history of Greece. From there we traveled to Corinth and walked the grounds of the archaeological site. As we held our service under the shade of a tree in the midst of Corinth, we read Acts 18:1-10 and 1 Corinthians 13:4-13. How fitting to read these verses as we stood on this ground. Phillip shared his message today reminding us the “they will know we are Christians by our love”. How easy it is to respond in sarcasm or negativity…imagine what we could accomplish if we responded as Christians and love in all things?


I am quite familiar with the start of 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 as I am sure most of us are. Love is patient, love is kind, love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable; it keeps no record of wrongs; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. As we sat in Corinth today, the latter half resonated with me more 1 Corinthians13:11-13; When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. For now we see only a reflection, as in a mirror, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. And now faith, hope, and love remain, these three, and the greatest of these is love.


I do not deceive myself into believing that I am quite an adult along my faith journey and relationship with God, but I am forever thankful to be on the path and will praise the day when I do know fully as I have been fully known.


We ended the day with shopping on the way back to Athens and a wonderful, but tiring dinner-long day indeed!
