Written to the congregation which the Apostle Paul probably held closest to his heart, the Letter to the Philippians is packed full of Jesus Christ, and overflows with a contagious sense of real, great, practical, living joy!
Paul was bound by chains in a Roman prison when he wrote to the church at Philippi. But despite the loss of his freedom and opposition from fellow gospel-workers, this short letter radiates joy — joy that the gospel is proclaimed, joy in partnership and fellowship with the Philippian Christians, and above all — joy in Jesus Christ himself.
Join us through the Autumn of 2012 as we explore the great themes of this book, and seek to understand and apply God’s Word to our lives today.
