Welcome to this week’s Start:Stop reflection from St Stephen Walbrook, when we stop for a few minutes and start to reflect on a passage from scripture
This week the church celebrates the Conversion of St Paul – an event on the road to Damascus vividly described in the Acts of the Apostles. Paul’s own accounts of his experience appear, on the surface at least, to be less dramatic – but no less transformational. In his letter to the Galatians he explains that the revelation of the risen Christ caused him to reassess his response to three important questions:
Who am I?
Who is Jesus Christ? and;
How does Jesus Christ transform who I am?
Paul’s ministry to the Gentiles – inviting non-Jews to become followers of Christ, might be seen as a quest to help us all to explore the answers to these questions for ourselves.
