Exploring our Faith with the Letter to the Romans

Nothing can separate us from the love of God, Paul reminded the fledgling church in Rome when he wrote to them in the first century. For “If God is for us, who is against us?” he asks (8:31). The Letter to the Romans is full of wisdom and encouragement, both for the early believers and for us today.

During the season of Epiphany 2019, Episcopalians across the country will study Romans together as part of the Good Book Club. We’ll start on January 7 and read a section every day – except Sundays – through the Epiphany Season, ending on Shrove Tuesday, March 5.

The Good Book Club offers an opportunity to dive deeply into scripture and create a daily practice of engagement with God’s Word. In the Letter to the Romans, we will learn about life in the early church and central principles of our Christian faith.

All it takes is a Bible in whatever translation you prefer – in your hands or online. You will be provided with a reading schedule and multiple resources to enhance your connection with God through scripture. Each day, you will be invited to read, reflect, and pray upon a few verses of Romans.

Partners from across the Episcopal Church will provide resources to support you on the journey through Romans.

It all starts here
