Great Sermon! Hi, Pastor Steve.
Just a short comment about the context for the letter to the Philipians. Remember I told you I am signed up for a trip to Turkey and Greece in late October? I began reading the book of Acts sometime ago (I have read it before too many times to remember) in order to prepare myself for the trip, and I noticed that all the other places where the apostle Paul had visited before Philipi had sinagogues, but when he arrives to Philipi, there is no information about a sinagogue there. That fact called up my attention, and made me wonder if there were Jews in Philipi, or if there were only a few Jews, and they gathered up by the river.
