The apostle Paul reminds the church at Rome how to live in community inside and outside the church. This is not the exuberant rhetorical surplus we find in 1 Corinthians 13, but love is still Paul's guiding principle.
My wife, our four sons, and I occasionally take family trips into Washington, D.C. We always go in uniform: everyone wears the same T-shirt. We like the visibility of bright orange, and our current uniform is a loud orange advertisement for the West Michigan White Caps, the minor league baseball team in Grand Rapids.
