• Follow Paul’s steps through Greece, with Judge Starr and a Baylor seminary professor

    Mural of Paul in Corinth

    Corinthians. Philippians. Thessalonians. The titles are familiar as books of the Bible, but if you’re like me, you sometimes forget that they were first actual letters sent to people in such cities as Corinth, Philippi and Thessaloniki — and that those cities still stand today, some 2,000 years later.

    What better way to learn about those people and that remarkable time in history than by visiting the cities themselves? And what better person to learn from on such a trip than a professor from Baylor’s Truett Seminary?

    This summer, you’ll have your chance. From June 2-10, President Ken and First Lady Alice Starr will host “On Journey with Paul,” a nine-day trip through Greece. The tour will be guided by Dr. Todd Still, BA ’88, an ordained Baptist minister who has served as the William M. Hinson Professor of Christian Scriptures at George W. Truett Theological Seminary since 2003.

    Participants will visit Thessaloniki, Philippi, Kavala, Meteora, Kalambaka, Delphi, Epidaurus, Corinth and Athens; scheduled stops include places where Paul preached and taught, such as the Areopagus in Athens and the port city of Lavala, where he likely first set foot in Europe.

    To secure a spot on this Baylor Alumni Network trip, a deposit is due by this Friday, Feb. 28, so act fast. For details on the tour, please contact Dr. Still at Todd_Still@baylor.edu (254-710-7347).

    Sic ’em, Bears in Greece!
