What a treat to discuss this week’s lesson titled by NT Wright God’s Determined Faithfulness together. Sometimes this great letter from Paul to the Romans can be a challenge to digest since the arguments which he skillfully lays out can seem a bit heady and a challenge to understand.

THANKS for traveling the road together. What a privilege to gather discuss Scripture with you!
