Oliver referenced this Sticky Scriptures Session on Lists in 1 Corinthians and 1 Timothy:

Lists of vices and virtues served rhetorical functions in Greek and Roman society. Lay teacher Kevin Hamilton illuminates Paul’s love of lists and how they would have been heard and understood by the original hearers.

Kevin Hamilton’s Notes about Lists


Living God,
Open our hearts to your power moving
around us and between us and within us,
until your glory is revealed in our love
of both friend and enemy,
in communities transformed
by justice and compassion,
and in the healing of all that is broken. Amen
