Ian was never admitted because his breathing was not in distress. He still has a cough and keeps spiking random fever. (Update: Ian is doing some better and Aliya is clearing up. She is moving air well – just a little wheezing. She will be able to be moved to a regular pediatric room if she keeps progressing.)

TO LIVE IS CHRIST (New Series on Philippians)

Greetings, Church!

I am excited to announce our new series from the letter to the Philippians starting on July 18. This will be a 7-week study through the entire letter. However, my prayer is that this will be more than just another "study" and that God would use the sacred scriptures to convict our hearts of the true worth of "knowing Christ and the power of His resurrection."

For Paul, life IS the Messiah, the Risen Jesus. Therefore, something as harsh as death is viewed as a gain, an opportunity to be with Him. Paul also believed that if he was allowed to live beyond his house arrest, that the rest of his life would continue as "fruitful labor" for Christ.

In other words, Paul would be granted the opportunity to share in the story of Jesus by suffering and loving others more than himself.

Over the following weeks, my hope is for all of us to consider what these ideas and teachings mean for followers of Jesus today. What do these ideas and teachings mean for your life?

I'm eagerly praying for the Holy Spirit to captivate our hearts during the next few weeks.

Grace and Peace,

Daniel Alavi
