Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the churches of Christ greet you. - Romans 16:16 (ESV) One of the traditions of Hope during our gathered worship is to have scripture read by an individual from the congregation. (BTW: If you would like to read I'm always looking for folks.) It's great to hear God's Word together. One consistent question I've heard when I ask is, 'Does this passage have any weird names or places in it? And if so, can you help me figure out how to pronounce them?' That's one of the reasons we won't have anyone read the passage we are going to look at this week. It is filled with names. It's a passage we might easily skip or skim when we are reading. This passage has for us some encouragement as we consider it together. Paul is closing his letter and he has a few commendations and encouragements and hellos to pass along. In the midst of this the verses have something to say to us about God's church and our part in it. Take a few minutes to read through Romans 16 as we prepare to dive into this chapter this week. Also, we will have the chance to celebrate the Lord's Table together. This is always an important reminder for us to hope in the gospel and Christ's work in it.
