Paul of Tarsus (5AD–67AD) is a powerful figure in early Christianity and Christianity’s texts. Some find him the perfect disciple of the gospels, others find him a distraction. Some struggle with his language about women in the life of the early church; yet others argue that, for his time, he was a progressive.
So how do we understand Paul from his time and for our time? How can we take an understanding of reconciliation today, and engage in a dynamic conversation with the writings and legacy of Paul?
As part of our Public Theology series Corrymeela is honoured to have Paula Gooder with us for a weekend of reflection and learning, discussion and retreat on Saint Paul and Reconciliation. Do consider joining us. We’d be delighted to have you.
Corrymeela hosts bible studies, public lectures, weekends, shares reading resources and public discussions to deepen the conversation between theology and public life.
