“Thank-You Note”: a new sermon series for November

October 31, 2013


“Rejoice in the Lord always,” Paul writes in his letter to the Philippians (Phil 4:4). Does “always” really mean always? Do we have reasons to be thankful to God under any circumstance?

Does it help to know that Paul himself was in prison—a harsh, life-threatening imprisonment in Ephesus—when he wrote these words, which are part of his most exuberantly joyful letter? If Paul knew the secret to being thankful, we should all want to know what it is!

With this in mind, just in time for the Thanksgiving season, I’m going to be talking about our reasons for gratitude—even in the midst of pain and suffering—in a new four-part sermon series during November. The schedule is as follows:

Date Scripture Title
11/03/13 Philippians 1:18b-26 Thank You Note, Part 1: To Live Is Christ
11/10/13 Philippians 2:1-13 Thank You Note, Part 2: The Mind of Christ
11/17/13 Philippians 3:1-14 Thank You Note, Part 3: Pressing On
11/24/13 Philippians 4:2-13 Thank You Note, Part 4: Peace & Contentment
