St Paul on prayer and thanksgiving in 1 Thessalonians

Thursday November 26th  14.00 – 15.30

Dr Sean Ryan  Senior Lecturer at Roehampton University

Prayer is central to the theology of St Paul. We will look together at St Paul’s consolatory letter to the community of believers in Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians). We will reflect on how he encourages his hearers to give thanks to God at all times, and pray without ceasing, so as not to lose hope, even when hope and joy seem to have disappeared. We will reflect on the rich theology of prayer that blooms in this little letter.

This session will be on Zoom . If you would like a link, contact the Sion Centre on
