Paul was giving thanks for the Christians in Philippi because they had boldly and bravely learned to use their gifts for the spreading of the Gospel. We are each uniquely gifted people of God and it is joy when each person shares the gifts they have been given. We give thanks for the faithful people who continue to serve year after year in so many capacities!

We will have new reasons to be thankful!
God’s peace and joy be with you all,
