Series: Cultivating Christlikeness
September 6, 2021 | The Rev. Dr. Jonathan Bailes
Pope Francis once said, "A healthy Christian is a joyful Christian." For many people, however, this claim will sound either absurdly sentimental or woefully out of touch. How can Christians be a people of joy when their lives and their world are so frequently beset by tragedy and sorrow? In this session, we seek to learn the specific character of joy in the Bible and the ways we can cultivate that gladness.
