A sermon on Romans 8 preached at Wine Before Beer
21 July, 2015

How did they hear it
those early followers
of Jesus?
The ones who lived in Rome,
as slaves to the wealthy.
The destitute stoneworkers,
tile workers,
women and men,
some homeless,
some housed, just.
Jews from the ghettos.
the few Greeks from the hillsides,
with slaves of their own.

How did they hear
the gospel of Jesus?
The words of new life,
life in the Spirit?
