“Paul's challenge, particularly in Galatians and Romans, is to offer an alternative understanding of community (Thompson, 18).” - Thompson, James W., The Church According to Paul: Rediscovering the Community Conformed to Christ, Baker Academic, 2014.
This fall I will lead a class that will explore the major themes of Paul's letter to the Romans.
My goal for this class is to lead us into conversations that help us to gain new perspectives on how Paul's vision of community, conformed by the good news of Jesus Christ, shapes our everyday lives.
This blog will become a source of my notes and reflections from the class. I will attempt to have them posted by the beginning of each week.
For those in the class who engage this site, or for those who follow our journey from a distance, I invite you to post comments and share your thoughts. This will help to inform the class and can serve as a gauge for what topics most stir people’s imaginations.
May God bless our reading and conversation.
