Melissa continued our look at the book of Philippians, this week focusing on Phil. 4:1-9. Karl Barth called the joy Paul writes about in this book a “continual defiant ‘Nevertheless!'” In spite of everything, Paul’s joy is a protest against defeat. Where there is joy, death has not yet won.
Melissa closed her message with us listening to and watching a video by the Resistance Revival Chorus, This Joy. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TbDPwA09Bc)
The world didn’t give this joy, and the world cannot take it away.”
