Paul’s Letters to the Early Church (and Us)—Wednesday Forum with Dean Thomason

with 2 Comments

A Wednesday evening series with Dean Steve Thomason

TWO WEDNESDAYS: JANUARY 10 & 17, 2024, 6:45–8:15 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall or online via Zoom. Optional community dinner at 6 p.m. ($6/child; $8/adult; $25/max. family)

UPDATED DESCRIPTION: Responding to broad interest expressed for a class on Paul’s letters following a sermon last summer, Dean Thomason offers this two-week series to explore major themes of Paul’s epistles, why they are so prominently esteemed in the Christian tradition, and why they are problematic for us in modernity. We will unpack some difficult passages, revel in some exquisitely beautiful ones, and seek to better understand this titular figure whose legacy makes him one of the most impactful people in all of human history. Can his letters serve as catalyst to transformation on the Christian journey even today?

    Hi there, I would like to attend, but my esophageal repair surgery was finally scheduled for Monday, January 8th. So I will either still be in the hospital or just home.

    If all is well, I would like to attend the second session. Thanks, Judy

    Steve says this is one of the greatest lines in the Bible, “You have requested to go to the emperor; to the emperor you shall go.”
    What’s so great about that line? one of the greatest lines in the Bible?
