While justification is a central doctrine of our Lutheran faith, it is not always an easy subject to preach. Helping our hearers understand justification and its importance can be difficult. Rev. Dr. Mark Seifrid will lead a study on Romans 1–8 in order to provide you with new and useful insights that you may bring to your sermon preparation for the summer of 2023.
