Mystical Roots Of St. Paul Topic For Christian Education At St. Paul's Episcopal On Sunday

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Dr. Paul Holloway, professor of the New Testament at the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, will be the guest speaker on Sunday, for Christian Education for Adults at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 805 West 7th St. 

The meeting will begin at 9:15 a.m. in Huckabay Hall. His topic will be "Paul in Ecstasy: The Mystical Roots of St. Paul's Religion." Over the past couple of decades scholars have begun to re-imagine the center of Paul's religion, from an emphasis on Torah and the Christ-believer's legal standing before God to an emphasis on the Spirit and the Believer's religious experience.

In this class we will look at some of the key texts supporting this re-interpretation of the apostle. 

The Music at St. Paul's Artist Series on Friday, at 7:30 p.m. will feature Adam Hayes, trumpet, Joel Treybig, trumpet, and Andrew Risinger, organ. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. A reception will follow. The concert will include works by Jean Thilde, Johann Pagel, John Hingeston, Samuel Ducommun and Bernard Keol and the world premiere of Lux et Lapis.

Of his worldy possessions, I believe the only things bigger than his $4 billion bank account are his arrogance and his ego but what he did Friday was shameful. Here we have two Americans in Africa on a mercy mission who have been stricken with the ebola virus and as emergency efforts are in progress to bring them home, Trump -- in his usual ...
