Bad news surrounds us.
It comes to us through our phones, computer, and television screens.
We encounter it everywhere we go. If we are not careful, we can drift toward cynicism, fear or despair — especially if we like to worry.
As followers of Jesus, we must not lose sight of the fact that God has given us good news.
We call it the gospel.
The gospel truths shared with the early church at Rome echo into our day, reminding us that we still have good news to embrace personally and to share with others.
September 6, 2019 the Friday Ladies Bible Study group will start a new book, Romans: Good News that Changes Everything by Melissa Spoelstra. This is a six-week (or more) Bible study that will take us through the book of Romans. Join us on Fridays at 9:00am in Fellowship Hall at Bethesda Lutheran Church. Books are available at amazon.com or call Susan Decker (745-5487) to get on the order list.
