The topic of happiness has become somewhat controversial in evangelical circles.
We correctly understand that health and wealth may not be in the cards
for every Christian; suffering is a very real part of our lives. With
this realization some of us have rejected the notion that God is at all
concerned about out happiness. Yet at the same time we pursue happiness,
because it's what we really want out of life. So there's this tension
in the life of modern-day Christians. We shun happiness with one hand
and grasp for it with the other. So what should we make of our pursuit
of happiness? Should we be ashamed of it? Should we embrace?
What does God really want for us? Paul addresses these questions and
much more in his epistle to the Philippians. We cordially invite you
to join on Sundays at 10 AM for our winter sermon series entitled The
Pursuit of Happiness. We'll take an honest look at what we really want
out of life - and what God wants for us.
