A Conversation Where Life and Faith Converge in Christ
Join us September 20-23, 2015, as we look at the book of Philippians.
Summit 2015 - Same Mind
The Letter to the Philippians, written from a Roman prison to a church also confronted with the power of Rome, speaks across the ages to the 21st century. According to Paul, a church facing hostility from society responds not with anxiety, but with joy. It challenges the emphasis on status and honor with the story of the one who "emptied himself." This community, composed of people from diverse backgrounds, is united in the mind of Christ. Surrounded by those who look to political power for salvation and claim that "Caesar is Lord," it proclaims instead the sovereign lordship of Jesus, our savior. This minority group does not retreat in isolation, but shines like stars in the world.
