Paul's first epistle to the Thessalonians was a heart-to-heart letter from a pastor, Paul, to a struggling young church in the Greek city of Thessalonica.
About a year had passed since a storm of persecution swept Paul away from the Thessalonians, leaving them as mere saplings in their faith. He had to wonder if they could weather the tumult alone. So much was at stake—these people, this city, and the momentum of the faith were on the line.
Did the Thessalonian church have the “right stuff” to survive and grow? Through our study of Paul's letter, we'll discover the answer. And we'll discover what it takes to develop a stronger faith and greater joy in our own lives—the kind of Christianity that not only lasts but spreads. A contagious Christianity.
