Scripture Study: Paul’s Letters from Prison – Starts January 7th
Join us as we study “Paul’s Letters from Prison” on Thursday mornings beginning January 7th, 8:15 to 10:00 a.m. in the Parish Hall Library. This is a 10-week study, incorporating an introductory session and nine lessons, covering Philippians, Colossians, and Ephesians.
In these letters of encouragement, correction and instruction written from prison, Paul lovingly inspires and challenges us to greater discipleship. In Philippians, Paul calls on the community to rejoice even when difficulties and struggles abound in life. Paul offers Jesus himself as the prime model to follow in his humility and obedience. Colossians and Ephesians have a number of striking similarities, including the depiction of the Church as the body of Christ, with Christ as the head. Colossians, however, contains a great hymn of praise to Christ as the image of the invisible God, while Ephesians describes the Church as the spotless bride of Christ.
All are welcome—you can join this study at any time. There is a $15 cost for materials. Please contact Elisa Baroni at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and to let her know you will be attending so that she may plan accordingly.
