Pr Matt tells the story of the time when Paul was shipwrecked on his way to Rome.  Things weren't going well for Paul in that time in his life. He is arreseted, imprisoned, convicted, then shipwrecked.  And then, just when he thought it couldn't get any worse, a poisonous snake bites him on the hand.  The pandemic era may feel the same way for many of us.  We look at the good news this story teaches us today.
