      Kuhlman, Mary Haynes (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2008-09-02)

      O'Reilly, Daniel Patrick (University Ministry, Creighton University.Omaha, Nebraska, United States, 2012-09-04)
      Today's scripture readings seem to be about the contrast between spiritual things and worldly things. God's standard and our standard. In 1 Corinthians, Paul proclaims that we have the mind of Christ (a bold statement). ...
