This week, we will continue in our sermon series “People of Light” and we will reflect on the apostle’s call to the Philippians to: Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. (4:5). What does it mean to be people who prioritize gentleness, even in the face of difficult or stressful circumstances? How does a commitment to gentleness influence our thoughts and our actions as we seek to stand firm in faith?
