The workshop offers participants an opportunity to discuss themes according to their interests relating to the details of the passage, its meaning, the culture of Paul’s time, and even Paul’s theology.
This recording summarizes the "New Creation" theme of the Bible and shows how this is not limited to the future but is inaugurated in the church and transforms Christian relationships. It challenges us to live in light of the new creation, welcoming the transformative work of the Holy Spirit, who gifts both women and men for ministry.
Explorations of Genesis 2 intent on recovering God's ideal for the interrelationship between male and female often zoom in on the creation of Eve. We are better able to appreciate how the narrative supports that ideal when we engage the whole chapter.
How can we better serve and inform a growing diverse community with an egalitarian theology message that is clearly understood? What are better ways to create bridges of conversation that are not intrusive or divisive?
