Reflections and discussion on the readings for the week with the clergy
Barnabas vs. Paul: To encourage or confront? by The Rev. Canon C. K. Robertson, PHD, Nashville: Abingdon Press, 2015
You are invited to join a Lenten book discussion centered on the missionary activity and the personal relationship between St. Barnabas and St. Paul as found in the New Testament. Canon Robertson's book is a short work not overly technical or demanding, designed for individual or group study. The text not only explores the past it functions as a guide to consider our own situation today on the personal, congregational and denominational levels.
"Paul and Barnabas started out as inseparably close friends and colleagues until a conflict tore them apart. Barnabas of Cyprus faded into relative obscurity, while Paul of Tarsus became, apart from Jesus himself, the most influential figure in the history of Christianity and , arguably, the most maligned. By exploring their common journey, we can move beyond myths and assumptions. Theirs was a partnership that, quite literally, changed the world." back cover of book.
