Bill shares a message from Romans 8. Many in the midst of the disruption of the Covid-19 pandemic are also dealing with a variety of life challenges and losses. The confluence of events only highlights that life is hard. Hopefully, in today's lectionary passage, we sense the depth of God's love for us in the reality of the Spirit groaning for us when we can't find the words to pray, and Jesus, in His humanity, experiencing the range of emotions we face in hard times and divinely staying with us to the end -- gloriously completing what He began. Romans 8:26-39; 1 Kings 3:5-12.
