Sermon 07-19-2015

Our guest speaker Kelly M. Kapic (Professor of Theological Studies at Covenant College) walks us through Philippians 4:1-9 and speaks to us about practicing the peace of Christ. Kapic speaks about his concern that "many of us have tended to reduce the Gospel to a promise of personal peace and we are often tempted to limit spirituality to psychological well-being. Consequently, concern for spirituality and the Christian life becomes framed almost exclusively in individualistic terms of self-improvement." While it is good and helpful to ask God to help us gain self-control and emotional awareness, Kepic asks, "is that the fullness of Gospel 'peace'?"
