This series will be focusing on knowing Jesus and praying for one another.

Knowing Jesus – The Secret of Contentment

Sharon Angell brings us the last talk in our series from Philippians, reminding us that the Christians in Philippians were a church facing persecution, that Paul was writing at a time of great suffering, and asks how we can live in that place of contentment in Jesus, whatever our circumstances.

Knowing Jesus – Enjoying Peace

Hannah Giddens shares Philippians 4 with us and reminds us to not be anxious in anything but in everything present our requests to God, that we can live with amazing peace in our lives as the God of peace is with us and as we get to know Jesus.

Knowing Jesus – Standing Firm

Our Rural Dean, Geoff Bennett, explains that in the letter to the Philippians Paul was refreshingly honest about his faith.  Paul knew that he was not perfect and he longed to experience more of the resurrection power of the Spirit in his life transforming him to be more like Jesus. As Paul puts it in Philippians 3.13b-14 ‘But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.’

Pentecost – Our God is a God of Surprises

Geoff Davis recalls the time God sent His Holy Spirit to the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem and reminds us of the joy we can have in knowing Jesus.

Knowing Jesus – Becoming like Him

‘Rejoice in the Lord’ Bishop Hugh reminds us of God’s joy when there is plenty going on around us that makes joy difficult. Paul’s letter to the Philippians talks about joy and rejoicing despite Paul being in prison when writing it.
Hugh gives us three simple practical habits to help us be like Jesus, to dwell with the Father, with joy.
