Sermon Follow-up: "Everyday Christians Embrace Self-denial... Every Day"

Hello Godspeed, It was great to be together yesterday!

If you have a special need, please feel free to call the church office at 401-545-0724. We talked yesterday about taking up our cross daily and following...

Sermon Follow-up: "Repentance is the Key to the Gospel for Me"

On Sunday, May 25, we looked at Mark 1:14-15 - "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." (We went backward in Mark for one week, a communion Sunday, in order to answer the question, "What exactly do we mean by 'the gospel for Christians?'") So here's a quick summary of the points of the sermon. As always, if they raise q...

20 Schemes Conference - Reflections

The day following a conference is often full of nitty-gritty details, like emails and expense reviews.

Bible Reading in the New Year

Someone just asked me about Bible reading plans and sent me this one from Joe Carter. I have two thoughts about his reading plan, then a few other recommendations to add to it. I like the idea that Joe Carter suggests re-reading a book many times. Reading the same thing many times has a way of kneading the text into our minds like nothing else. But kneading it into our he...

What is The Philip Center (Part II)

Q: Don't all these strategies and goals make it hard to do any one thing well? Maybe. But we know we're a small Philip Center staff, and also a relatively small church.

They provide a platform for our message (which overlaps ve...
