Philemon - A Lens for Reckoning
Every week on Sunday until Feb 20, 2022 from 9:30a to 10:30a

Join Matt Taylor (New Testament Scholar) and Tom & Taylor Stewart (Anti-Racism Steering Committee) during the education hour for a three-part series exploring the Book of Philemon as a possible lens for focusing some of our reckoning with Brown Memorial's history around slavery and present considerations about what to do about that history.

  • February 6: an introductory background look at slavery in the Roman empire and the social and economic context of Philemon.
  • February 13: an in-depth Bible study of the book itself
  • February 20: a discussion about how we might apply what we've learned from this historical/biblical case study to Brown Memorial's own contemporary questions.
