You just received an invitation to TEA with the Romans!
When: Tomorrow morning
Where: Your house
What: TEA with Jesus and the Romans
Come as you are!
But you just aren’t sure, do you really want to have TEA with these ancient dudes in white sheets? The Romans are the ones the Apostle Paul was writing to when he penned the New Testament Book of Romans. All the words in this book are God’s Word, read first by the Roman Christians. What a blessing for us to share in these inspired verses, using them as conversation starters as we have TEA and prayer with Jesus. Won’t you join in?
