Early Church Writings: Philemon

Early Church Writings: Philemon

This past week we gathered by Zoom and had a fabulous conversation around a very short book in the New Testament: Paul’s Letter to Philemon. Perhaps because of it’s brevity, it encouraged us plenty of time to discuss some of the major themes, and to wonder together, why this book was first placed in the canon (books of the bible) and what would have been missing if it hadn’t.

We found the book filled with the theme of hospitality and how right relationships are an expression of the hospitality of God, which we are to show with each other.

We will next meet on June 17th. You are always welcome to join us. Please contact Mother Barbara for the Zoom link.
