Chapter 4 of Paul’s letter to the Galatians is full of dense passages and obscure references. It’s especially important in this chapter to pay attention to who his audience is- Non-Jewish, new Christians. We talk about how Paul makes the point that scripture is allegory (he literally says don’t take it literally!) and how Jesus is separate from God (the gospels and Paul’s letters were written before the Nicene Creed determined the Trinity!). So what does this mean for us today? We discuss how we can make sure our spiritual practices are not a distraction from moving us towards justice and also the importance of sacred storytelling in creating some productive discomfort.
