Romans 16:1-27

What seems like just a list of names at the end of Paul's letter to the Romans is more than that - it's a picture of what the gospel does, bringing women and men together from all different backgrounds and making them into one people. These people are all welcome and all a part of continuing on the call to spread the gospel of Jesus -  they demonstrate the good news by their life together and they work together to share it with others. They are good news people and we are invited to be the same.
