#Sandy changes football game to recovery effort

Traditionally this weekend is the General Theological Seminary (GTS) flag football game. This year’s game was to be held at General, located in lower Manhattan, which was under blackout conditions following Superstorm Sandy. Because of Sandy, the game has been cancelled. VTS students will be making the trip anyway, as a mission trip.

This article focuses primarily on the use and misuses of St Paul in fractious contemporary church debates about sexuality and gender. It can also be read in parallel with the growing body of theological and historical work on re-understanding one of the key figures in the history of Christianity, suggesting that Paul’s project was to create a new community and dynamic which was capable of re-energising the suppressed radicalism of Torah religion in a dangerously imperialistic setting.
