All are welcome to join our diverse community dedicated to sharing our lives and studying God’s Word. As we leave 2020 behind us, we cautiously enter into a new year with hope in our hearts and with a world still in pain.
The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Romans, reminds his original readers—and the community of faith today—that the church shares in this suffering, groaning in the tension between the “already” of possessing the fruit of the Spirit and the “not yet” of our very human, present reality. And Paul makes abundantly clear that God doesn’t stand apart from the pain. Rather, God, through Jesus Christ, entered into and dwells in the middle of humanity and creation’s pain and suffering.
Using N.T. Wright’s study as our guide, we’ll explore Paul’s Letter to the Romans, confront a world in pain not so different from our own, and experience God’s deep love still at work today to reconcile the world to himself.
