About the 4th United Presbyterian Bible Blog

Posts on this blog are from me, Rev. George H. Waters, one of the two organizing co-pastors of 4th United Presbyterian Church. Our other organizing pastor was Rev. Sonya McAuley-Allen, who is now pastor of a church in Charlotte, N.C. Since June of 2011, Rev. Elizabeth Peterson has been our parish associate pastor for new church development. The earliest posts are sermon notes from the few I have typed the last two years. Then, there is a series of notes posted on the book of Romans. After that, it varies from week to week, sometimes church news, sometimes reflections on a happening, a passage of scripture, or even some pictures. This blog is meant to open the conversation we have going on in our church to others in our community.

The picture below is of our church's sanctuary, built in 1913.

Looking at Romans 1:18-32

With this passage the letter of Romans begins to move. Paul is going to bring all of life before God and reinterpret all history and all scripture in light of God's revelation in Jesus, the Messiah, and the experience of God's Spirit that has come out of that. Paul's mind first turns to the "WRATH OF GOD." After reading through the passage a little ways, I want to try to understand this concept "the wrath of God."

So, reread the whole first chapter, and start getting a sense of what this wrath of God is about.

I'll post again today or tommorrow.
