Happiness is fragile, don't you think? Try joy instead. When encountering adversity happiness wilts like a flower, but joy grows and deepens even in affliction. This worship service also includes a look at the St. Lucia tradition (in Swedish: Sankta Lucia), the story of a young woman who chose the joy of a life in Christ rather than family riches or the love of her fiancé. This video will be available beginning 6:00 am Sunday, December 13, 2020.
Pastor Mark loves his wife and grown children, the Word of God, and words. And coffee,
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6–7)
