Register now for Introducing Romans, a live online class with Jay Sidebotham. It starts tomorrow at 8 p.m. and lasts for an hour. It will meet for eight consecutive Wednesdays. This class supports the Good Book Club Epiphany reading initiative focusing on Paul’s letter to the Romans.
This class will offer an opportunity for Episcopalians to reflect on one of the books in the New Testament that has had the greatest impact on the church. The longest of Paul’s letters, Romans offers a sweeping vision of Paul’s theology, with a focus on grace that comes to all people. The letter includes rigorous recognition that we all contend with powers that bind us; that a new life of freedom is available in the good news of Jesus Christ. The letter to the Romans has had transformative influence on the church at critical moments in our history. It’s exciting to see what might happen to the Episcopal Church as we prayerfully reflect on its message this Epiphany season.
We hope you will join the many students who have already signed up to read the Book of Romans with Jay. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Congregational subscribers and facilitators, please note: live online courses like this one will not work properly if you simply add them to your church’s school as you would add our pre-recorded classes. Your parishioners CAN, however, gain free access to the course due to your congregational membership. Please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to give your parishioners free access to this course. The process is not difficult, and we will respond quickly to your email.
