When studying the Bible for yourself, there can be great value in using a plain Bible with no notes or paragraph headings. Instead of a publisher telling you what the Bible is about to say, you can discover things on your own. Currently our three adult classes are studying Romans in Sunday School.

Sunday night, Pastor pointed out that when we see a squirrel or a robin flee from us, it should remind us of the world's fallen condition (Gen. 9:2).
