Last night some Catholics (including my family and I) and some Protestants from different Protestant traditions attended Professor Lawrence Feingold's lecture titled "St. Paul on Justification". The lecture was fantastic. The audio (as an mp3 file) can be downloaded here. I'm hosting a discussion of this lecture at my home this Sunday (May 3), from 2 pm to 4 pm, and anyone who would like to participate is welcome to come. If you're within driving distance of St. Louis, and would like to come, just send me a note (my e-mail address is in the 'About me' section below to the left), and I'll give you directions to my home.
Justification is the fundamental issue that has divided Protestants and Catholics for almost 500 years. In order to be reconciled in the full communion Christ wants His disciples to show to the world, we need to reach agreement on this subject. And that means that we first need to listen and understand each other on this subject. Here's an opportunity to do just that.
UPDATE: Professor Feingold will be attending our discussion.
