After several years of traveling from synagogue to synagogue in the part of the world we know as Greece and Turkey, the Apostle Paul was planning a preaching mission in Rome, the imperial capitol. He had received many reports of the growing Christian community in that city. Like all the other early Christian communities, the members were mostly Jews. But Paul heard that the community also included some non-Jews.
In preparation for this mission, Paul wrote a lengthy epistle to be read in their weekly gatherings. This document was carefully preserved and handed down from generation to generation. Eventually it was included in the canon of the Christian Scriptures.
Please plan to join us as we gather at 10:30 each Wednesday morning in the Parish Hall.
