11.26.2023 - Wait For It
Sometimes giving thanks comes easy. Sometimes it’s a struggle to praise God while drowning in deep disappointment. This Sunday we'll listen in on a dialogue between God and a disappointed man who resolves to praise God anyway.
11.19.2023 - A Theology of Food
Since Thanksgiving marks the official beginning of the holiday eating season, let us develop a robust theology of food so we are thoroughly equipped to eat and drink to the glory of God.
11.12.2023 - Giving and Receiving
We wrap up our study of Philippians by digging into the final section of the letter, in which Paul expresses his gratitude to the Philippians for the financial gift they sent him while he's in prison. What could have been a simple "thank you" turns out to be much more complex, and for good reason.
11.5.2023 - A Non-Anxious Presence
Managing our anxiety when faced with trouble is an essential skill for a follower of Jesus. Chronic anxiety keeps us from making wise decisions and destroys relationships. In Philippians 4:1-9, Paul names several practices that can help us become a less-anxious presence in the midst of difficult circumstances.
10.29.2023 - Citizen of Heaven
At the end of Philippians 3, Paul drops a thought bomb on our understanding how to live the Christian life, when he describes Christ-followers as "citizens of heaven." The implications from understanding our primary citizenship in this way are staggering.
10.22.2023 - Knowing Christ
