From Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus,
To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are in Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in Godâ€™s grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel. For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight to help you to determine what is best, so that on the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.

Thanks so much Sr.Kerstin
Your thoughts are very relevant for this time…. And the idea of letter writing .. As Paul and his companions did….. Is a good idea.
Thanks. Blessings on you and your Community

Kerstin-Marie, I always look forward to your preaching on this site. Thank you so much for todayâ€™s message! I was having similar thoughts about what to do for the holidays, and your preaching sealed it for me. I hope you and yours are well and that the new ministry is a blessing for you. I have no doubt you are a blessing for your students!
