Saint Paul was responsible for all Western theories of Multiculturalism. Join us we explore his exciting and radical ideas, and compare them with secular thought.

For 30 minutes after the 10am Worship Service.

in greater depth at 7:00 in the evening.

2nd Week — Paul’s Disturbing Idea — Read Chapter 2

3rd Week — Sacred and Secular Multiculturalism
(You are encouraged to read the final Chapter 3 of the book, but it is not a requirement for the forum.)
