Virtual Sunday Morning Seminar

Each Sunday in January 2021, from 9-10am via Zoom.

“A Reconciling Life" with The Rev. Dr. Thomas Sheffield.

By looking again at the Apostle Paul, who experienced a "transcendent" moment that led him to declare that reconciliation was at the heart of living as a Christian.  Looking at words throughout Paul's letters, this course
explores his life and the way his struggle to live out reconciliation can impact us today.

January 10 "At the Heart" Reconciliation is at the heart of Paul's writing. But we also can see
that reconciliation was for him and is now for us a life-long work.

January 17 "Unanswered Question" The relationship between younger generations and the
church is one of dis-ease and distance. Is a reconciliation possible? Paul's letter to a younger
member of the church, II Timothy, will form the basis of our discussion.

January 24 "Church Fights" One could say that conflicts in congregations and throughout
the young church were at the heart of nearly all of Paul's correspondence. He called on them
in each instance to find a way to reconcile. In our time of conflict throughout the church
how do Paul's particular pieces of advice become living words for us as Christians and in
PCUSA?

January 31 "A Remaining Struggle" In the brief letter of Philemon, Paul takes on the problem of slavery and the relationship between a believing master and believing slave. Can we see
any light from Paul that can shine on our persistent problems of slavery and race?

The Rev. Dr. Thomas Sheffield served as pastor to the Presbyterian Church in Morristown from 1973 to 2001. For the next 16 years he served the Presbytery of Denver as Presbytery Pastor, retiring in 2017. His work there included caring for ministers and congregations in all times of their lives, supporting the formation and strengthening of new worshipping communities including many who  worship in languages other than English, and encouraging numerous missions including a partnership with the Presbytery of Zimbabwe. Currently he serves as coconvener of the Presbyterian Church (USA)'s Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique Mission Network and was named Pastor Emeritus of PCM in 2019. Tom is a graduate of The College of Wooster (BA). Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv) and Drew University Theological School (DMin). Kathy and Tom live in Toms River, New Jersey.
