SUMMER SERMON SERIES
Roamin’ Through Romans: Summer of Mercy
The worship theme for the summer of 2017 is “Roaming Through Romans: Summer of Mercy.”
Throughout many of the weeks of the summer, we will be preaching the lectionary texts for Paul’s Letter to the Romans.
The letter to the Romans is a very important letter in the New Testament, and has played a crucial role in the Protestant Reformation, in Christian thinking generally, and in the lives of individual Christians. It is a challenging letter, which roots our faith in the righteousness of God.
Alongside Romans, we will be considering a variety of ‘acts of mercy’ as the Christian tradition has discerned them: visiting the prisoner, forgiving all injuries, giving drink to the thirsty, sheltering the homeless, etc.
