What do Saint Paul’s letters have to do with our lives and world today? Often dismissed by progressive What do Saint Paul’s letters have to do with our lives and world today? Often dismissed by progressive Christians, we will explore these rich letters through the lens of Clarence Jordon’s Cotton Patch Bible in the confidence that Paul’s ancient words have meaning still. Founder of Koinonia Farms and inspiration of Millard Fuller, Jordan also wrote The Cotton Patch Gospel as a paraphrase of the New Testament set in the American south. Set alongside our customary translations of the Epistles, Jordan’s re-telling will help us to read and hear the age-old words of Saint Paul with new ears for today.

 

Co-led by Thom Nealssohn and Fr. Drew, we will begin with a close reading of Saint Paul’s Letter to the Church in Rome, or, as Jordan re-titles it, The Letter to the Christians in Washington.
