The following was submitted by St. John's Lutheran Church.
On Saturday, March 2 St. John’s Lutheran Church in Phoenixville will host the annual Trusting our Wings Breakfast beginning at 8:30 am at 355 St. John’s Circle, Phoenixville. The community is invited. Trusting our Wings is part of a Theologian in Residence weekend and features a presentation by Dr. Erik Heen on the New Testament writer and apostle Paul entitled Paul – The Man and the Message beginning at 9:30 am. Dr. Heen was asked to focus upon Paul because this year the Phoenixville Community Wednesday Lent Worship series is entitled “From Paul…with Love.”
“Trusting our Wings” focuses upon the social and economic redevelopment as well as the spiritual and religious growth of the community. While free to the people of the Phoenixville area, but reservations are necessary and can be made by calling the Church office at 610-93303947 by Wednesday, February 27 or be emailing St. John’s at email@example.com.
Dr. Erik Heen holds the John H. P. Reumann Chair in Biblical Studies at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, 7301 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia. He is a graduate of Harvard College, Harvard Divinity School and Columbia University. Dr. Heen is interested in the role of Scripture in the contemporary church as well as what the New Testament can tell us about the origins of Christianity. Increasingly, the history of biblical interpretation has also been a focus of his research. As part of his interpretation studies, he seeks to learn all he can about how the Bible is being actually read in churches and homes in the United States today. Dr. Heen's specific New Testament research interests include Paul, the Gospel of John, and the Book of Revelation.
