Providing background information on the Pauline body of writings, Rector Greg Jones explores how Saint Paul ‘invented’ theology — a systematic understanding of how God is working in the world in Jesus and Spirit as the defining mark, and generative ground, of beingChristian. It’s no longer race, ethnicity, class, or accomplishment that defines us or bonds us in community, but it is our submission to Jesus as Lord and the working of his spirit.
The Rev. Robert Fruehwirth introduces a four-part series on the Apostle Paul. Saint Paul, whose life was torn in half and remade around Jesus, would have said that believing in Christ makes the greatest difference possible to every human being, and that Christians make a huge difference to creation. Paul was even adamant that being the Church together is the first and most important expression of our faith.
