See you next fall!

Romans Chapter 16

And so, at last, we come to the last chapter of this inspiring and challenging book. This week, the apostle gives us a glimpse of the relationships that enriched his life. As he does, he invites us all to consider the people that we carry in our hearts as we strive to love one another in the way that Jesus loves us.

Next week, Jody will bring an overview of this year’s study in Romans.
