2015 New Year Area-Wide Worship Service

On 12 January there was a new year area-wide worship service.   This is the first one of the three lectures I speak on Romans from January to March.  I speak once a month for the three months.   On the 12,  I spoke twice both in the morning and the afternoon.  The morning lesson is an exhortation from Romans.  The title is “pure faith.”  I think it is very applicable to Japanese Christians who bring their previous religious experiences to Christianity.  As a result, their faith is not as pure as the Bible teaches.

In the afternoon I spoke and explained the historical and cultural backgrounds of Romans and the message of Romans 1-4.  I think both lessons went well.  The second lecture will be on 21 February.
