This Sunday: “Those Workers in the Lord”
At first glance, Romans 16:1–16 appears to be just a list of names and greetings and some final words by Paul at the end of this magnificent letter. While certainly this text doesn’t carry the theological punch of much of the rest of Romans, there are some important truths for us to consider in this passage. Who is Phoebe and what can we learn from her about the role of women in the church? What about this couple Prisca and Aquila? Why were they so special to Paul? And why does Paul mention the names that he does here? Looking forward to digging in with you Sunday!
Grace and peace,
