Romans 8:18-27

This Sunday we continue exploring the letters of Paul, and this week we read from one of his latter letters—Romans. Paul writes about the “revealing of the children of God” in the midst of difficult times.  He is writing to a community that is called to resist the inhumane practices of the Roman Empire, which actively contradict their faith in the living Christ.  Our call is not much different. We will consider: What does it mean to be human, to be alive, to seek beauty here and now?
