It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

The Grace and Apostleship We Have Received, a Reflection on Romans 1:1-7

How good a job did Paul do? How are we doing on that apostleship and obedience that we are called to exhibit?

A few years ago I read the  Advent study, Blessings of the Manger by Jeanne Torrence Finley, that included
some questions for us that arise from this reading from Romans:
Where are our loyalties, and how do they define us?
What do our checkbooks tell us about what we value and to whom we give our allegiance?
What do our to-do lists say about our loyalties? What do our calendars and appointments tell us about what we value most?
