Friends, I am offering a free six-session study of Paul’s Letter to Philemon on Mondays, January 17, 24, and 31, and February 7, 15, and 22, 2022, from 7 to 8 p.m. on Zoom. During the study we will visit topics including how to read and understand Paul’s letters as oral/aural scripts, the nature of human enslavement as an institution in Greco-Roman culture and its impact on Christians, the ways that Paul sought to guide individuals and congregations in following Jesus, and ways in which this letter has relevance and power for our lives of discipleship today. I’ll present on a topic for twenty to thirty minutes and then we’ll spend the rest of the time in discussion. The sessions will be recorded for those who might miss a time or two. There’s no homework other than reading the text and no books to buy. If you want to participate, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on a social media platform, and I’ll send you a Zoom invitation.
