Oct 19: Undivided: Paul’s Communities as Our Salvation (Women in the Church)
6:30-7:30PM | Former Yale Theologian, Rev. Allen Hilton

To some Christians in our time, Paul’s sole purpose is to give us Jesus the savior; rescuing us from hell and taking us to heaven. To other Christians in our time, Paul is the devil himself — homophobe and misogynist, purveyor of bigotry for the ages. But the Paul of the New Testament pictures a Jesus “for this world and the next,” and in this world he has mad skills for building community. He may even be just what the divine doctor ordered for what ails us in America these days.
