Each attendee can choose 3 of the 4 breakout topics:
A – Rejoice Always! Really?
Paul lays out several reasons he could genuinely rejoice regardless of his physical circumstances. We will discuss how we might adopt the same perspectives for our lives.
B – Letting Christ Define your Life
Paul encourages the Philippians to live lives that are worthy of the gospel message they have received. His recommendations still work for us today.
C – Humility, Following Jesus’ Examples
Christ’s life on this earth is an exemplary model of humility. Let’s look at his example and discuss what that would look like in our world.
D – Christian Friends, an Indispensable Blessing
Paul knows from personal experience the huge benefits of Christian friends praying and caring for one another. He also knows the power of working together to spread the gospel. What can we learn from Paul’s letter?
We encourage everyone to read the book of Philippians before the retreat.
