Peace like a River, Joy like a Fountain – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

Text: Philippians 4:1-9


In Paul’s letter to the Philippians, he has a lot to say about unity and what it means to have the mind of Christ. Near the end of the letter, he encourages two members, Euodia and Syntyche, to set aside their disagreement and work towards reconciliation. He then calls the entire community to focus on living lives filled with joy and peace. How do joy and peace mark our every day lives? And, what might it mean for our community at Lendrum to pursue the mind of Christ with these characteristics as our guide?
