Everyone Who Asks

Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. — Luke 6:30 —— “Were you expecting two Muslim women at church this morning?” The question came from a curious church member yesterday morning about forty-five minutes before worship. I looked at her blankly. “Um, no, […]

Another Way for week of July 5, 2019 Feeling Ripped Off? I hate feeling ripped off—in this case losing about four hours of time—for both my husband and me. Added up, that makes eight hours, pretty much wasted. I have written about other experiences whe...

This isn’t a happiness devoid of reality, where he invites the church at Philippi to wear Christian rose colored glasses. This sort of happiness embraces struggles, pain, suffering, and broken relationships. It holds the frustrations of life, names the circumstances we can’t control, and yet chooses a joy-filled contentment that can only be explained by having encountered the God of the universe in Jesus Christ. Journey with us through Paul’s powerful letter: Philippians.
