Slavery is alive and well both in and outside the United States. This month, we will look at how Paul addressed a slave owner named Philemon and his run-away slave, Onesimus. Paul's letter will help us to see just how we are to handle someone who is underneath our own status and power and how to handle conflict with those who may have wronged us.
For this two-part series, we will look at:
· The Lowest Status - Philemon 1:1-11
· The Greatest Status - Philemon 1:12-25
