One wouldn’t expect a letter from prison to be filled with joyous thoughts. Being chained to a prison guard for 24-hours a day does not exactly sound like a great time, but the Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Philippians gives us an entirely new definition of life.
This summer we will be studying the book of Philippians, a letter that Paul wrote to the church in Philippi during his first Roman imprisonment in approximately 61 AD. This letter, called by many commentators the “Epistle of Joy,” contains some of Paul’s most inspiring and challenging writing. We hope you join us as we study this ancient letter and discover together what it means for the church nearly 2000 years after it was written.
