The third meeting of the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin will be held on October 29. The topic of this session will be „Reformation in Poland – lessons for contemporaries”. During the lectures, we will analyze the history of the Reformation in Poland in the 16th and 17th centuries. We will talk about the lessons from that history for today’s biblical Christians. We will consider what can be learned from the history of Protestantism in Poland. We will ask questions such as: Why was it impossible to consolidate the gains of the Reformation at that time? What caused Polish Christians to give the field to the Catholic Counter-Reformation? Are we not currently duplicating the same mistakes? Are we, Polish Christians, able to meet the challenges posed by the modern world, culture and politics?
The lecturer will be Piotr Setkowicz, an engineer by profession, passionate about history. He is particularly fond of studying the history of Christianity in Europe and Poland. A disciple of Christ. He was converted in 1988 during his military service, which he performed together with Paweł Chojecki, now pastor of the New Covenant Church in Lublin. He participated in the oasis movement of the 1980s and is associated with the New Covenant Church in Lublin. He has great knowledge and experience, is devoted to the things of God, and zealously serves in the church.
Piotr Setkowicz is also associated with the magazine „Idź Pod Prąd” (Against the Tide), where he publishes his articles. His first book, „Judges of Thought – from the history of the Inquisition,” was highly appreciated by readers. During the third meeting of the Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin, there will be the premiere of his second book, entitled “A Flash in the Pan. From the History of the Polish Reformation”.
The Polish-Ukrainian Bible Institute in Lublin is the first such project in Poland. The main goal of the Institute is to integrate biblical Christians from Ukraine and Poland in order to implement joint evangelization and church projects and exchange experiences of working for Jesus in Ukraine and Poland, learn from each other and pray together for the future of our nations. During the school year, ten sessions will take place – one per month.
The lecturers are pastors, professors and Christian leaders drawn from various evangelical churches and organizations.
