Deepen Your Faith This Lent

St. Paul's Lenten Educational Opportunities

Adult Forums & Parish Book Study

How much do you know about the Apostle Paul of Tarsus — the world’s first Christian writer, the foundation of our church, and one of the most controversial figures in the history of our faith? Come learn more about his life and revolutionary theology through our Lenten forum series and book study. We’re fortunate to be joined by the Rev. A. Katherine Grieb, Ph.D., Professor of New Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary, as our guide for the three-week Lenten forum series, Mar. 4-18.

To supplement your understanding of Paul, the parish is invited to take part in a collective spiritual discipline and read together St. Paul: The Misunderstood Apostle (2015) by Karen Armstrong. This wonderful, dramatic, and brief book is the perfect companion for you this Lent and this Sure Foundation year.
