Announcements, Jan. 6, 2017
This Sunday we begin our series through Romans. I can hardly wait! Martin Luther described this letter as “really the chief part of the New Testament” and “truly the purest gospel. It is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but also that he should occupy himself with it every day, as the daily bread of the soul.” High praise indeed! This Sunday we’ll begin by looking at Romans 1:1–7. If you’re not up to Luther’s challenge of memorizing the whole book, just try reading it for now. See you Sunday!
Grace and peace,
