Pursuit of Happiness: Beyond Circumstances

Enduring happiness involves the ability to cultivate contentment, regardless of circumstances. This sermon is based on Philippians 4:4-7, 11-13. Despite the difficult circumstances, St. Paul writes from prison and offers hope and joy because of God’s nearness, strength, and peace. Two of the greatest obstacles to lasting happiness are regrets about the past and anxiety about the future. Both make it difficult to see what the present is already offering us. The message closes with an invitation to a life of gratitude and serenity because of the promise…” Whatever life brings us to, God can bring us through.”
