There's been much talk of the rise of the "nones" in our nation regarding Millennials and others who have no religious affiliation (and don't want one.) For the church to ignore this reality is tragic and yet, to continue a practice of inviting young people into lukewarm Christianity is not the answer. Jon speaks of this reality.

To have someone you know and love praying for you is a great gift. Paul's prayer for the Philippian Christians was powerful and encouraging. Just as this church had someone dear to them praying for them, so too do all Christians today and throughout time.

Joy is a choice, yet sometimes it seems as if we think joy just falls upon us as Christians automatically. Paul speaks of this joy that is accessible and available for Christians, though he himself was chained up in a Roman prison. How can a man going through great difficulty be joyous and thankful?

The introduction of Paul's letter to the church at Philippi is often read quickly, or even ignored. Certainly there's not much to gain from the salutation, right? Pastor David Tarkington begins this series with an examination of these two verses and reveals how God's plan of salvation and result of salvation is expressed by Paul here. Not only relevant for the church in Philippi, but for all believers at all times.
