     Romans: The Gospel of Salvation

Morning Facilitator: Marianne Underhill

      Evening Facilitator:   Pat Wachtel    

                                     

  Discover What It Means to “Be Saved”

Paul’s letter to the Romans has been at the center of reflection, conversion, and controversy from the time it was written. Presented by Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins, Romans: The Gospel of Salvation provides an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand the overarching theme of Romans—salvation. This fascinating book reveals that salvation is not merely the removal of a guilty verdict; it is about entering into Christ’s life, death, and resurrection and sharing in his divine life.                                                                                                                                            

In Jesus Christ, all the hopes and expectations of Israel are fulfilled, leading to the universal (“catholic”) family of God. Romans: The Gospel of Salvation will help you to make sense of the difficult passages regarding faith, works of the law, and justification. Above all, it will help you to enter into a more meaningful relationship with Christ. 
8 sessions – 9/13, 9/20, 9/27, 10/4, 10/11, 10/18, 10/25, 11/1

  First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community

     Morning Facilitator: Marianne Underhill

      Evening Facilitator:   Pat Wachtel    

 

             How Do I Live as a Christian in the Midst of a Pagan Culture?

If you page through Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, you will see that he addresses many of the same topics that appear in the news headlines today: scandals, promiscuity, debates and controversies, and issues related to prosperity versus poverty. Clearly, the struggles faced by the early Christians are in many ways similar to our own. Paul’s messages to the Corinthians about divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials offer much-needed wisdom for our own times.

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements of the gospel message that Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. Presenter Tim Gray examines Paul’s advice for living an authentic Christian life in a pagan culture as well as his teachings about the nature of grace, the Church as the body of Christ, and the most powerful gift of all—the Eucharist.

11 sessions – 11/22, 11/29, 12/6, 12/13, 12/20, 1/10, 1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/28

Cost of the workbook $25.    Register no later than November 15
