Discussion for Philippians 1

  • Sonya
    I love reading Philippians. Apostle St.Paul, is so compassionate about every word he speaks. He speaks a lot about joy and peace. He stands strong in what he believes in. I love the fact the way He reminds us of the Laws; he explains the difference in the graces and the mercies. When reading Philippians I get more and more out of it each time!!! The verses are all so powerful to me!
  • Althea Smith
