Team Rector Writes

“ Unpacking Romans”



Dear Friends,

Well, 2024 seems to be bringing us as much bad news as the world witnessed in the previous year – from devastating warfare to destructive weather.  Sadly, the terrible events in our daily news remind us – should we need reminding – that human beings are vulnerable creatures and life is fragile and fraught with risks. To live with peace, we need something to anchor us, to inspire us with the motivation and the confidence to persevere when confronted with adversity. In the face of much uncertainty – environmental, economic, societal – the Bible speaks hope over our story. For Christians down the ages, and still today, it is what God says to us through Scripture that gives a sure and certain hope that even death cannot snatch away.

That’s why the Bible – which I’ve studied over many years – means so much to me, and I delight to share its wisdom with others. So I’m inviting you to join me on a 10 week course that will start on Monday 5th February, and then run through Lent and Holy Week. Using videos filmed in Rome, it’s an exploration of St Paul’s letter to the Romans, presented by Andrew Ollerton in conjunction with the Bible Society. Each session takes us on a journey that will help us discover more about our place in God’s story. And the Romans Course is pitched in a way that is accessible for those new to, or exploring, Christian faith as well as mature Christians.

Here’s what Andrew Ollerton says about St Paul’s amazing letter:

“From Saint Augustine to David Suchet, the Letter to the Romans has transformed many lives. That’s right, the distinguished Hercule Poirot actor became a Christian while reading Romans. Who knows what will happen as we explore it together?

That said, Romans can be challenging. Some verses are hard to understand, and other bits seem controversial in our cultural context. But as we unpack the letter in its original setting, we will see the relevance of the overall message for today.

Every great adventure has challenging moments. That’s what makes the whole thing so rewarding in the end. Romans may be the Mount Everest of the Bible but trust me, the view will be worth it! Let’s get going …”.

Please do join me at 7.30pm on Monday evenings from 5th February if you possibly can. As we embark on the Romans Course together, let’s pray the words of St Paul for one another:

“May the God of hope fill us with all joy and peace as we trust in him, so that we may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”.  (Romans 15:13)

Yours in Christ’s service,
