Disrupted - Phil 1:27: Decision Making 101. There ought to be a course taught at every post-secondary institution on how to make great decisions that result in great legacies. I don’t know too much about Maya Angelou (other than the fact that she wrote seven autobiographies, which seems slightly narcissistic to me!) but I love her thought that, “We may not control all the events that happen to us, but we can decide not to be reduced by them.” We are not the sum of our circumstances, but we are deeply shaped by the kinds of choices we make in life. Paul’s words to the Philippians in chapter 1, verse 27 begin with “whatever happens.” It’s not a fatalistic statement of resignation but rather a strong statement of resolve to trust God no matter what comes our way. Out of that resolve come three fantastic truths that will serve as a great foundation for our lives. We get to look at them this weekend! I look forward to joining you in your living room as we worship Jesus together and follow the prompts of the blessed Holy Spirit! It may not feel like “Decision Making 101” but we will be encouraged! Have a great weekend. Stay safe. Stay well. Stay connected. Pastor Ian
