Scripture Text: Philippians 4:1-5               Preacher: Rev. David Sutherland                 Date: 28 May 2017

In today’s short Scripture text, Paul is believed by some commentators to be revealing the main purpose of his letter, that is, to resolve an intractable dispute between two leading members of the Philippian Church. As guidance, he sets out five principles of conflict resolution, which might be applied to all potential quarrels in the church, and elsewhere.

The following Psalms were sung in conjunction with this Sermon: Psalm 122:1-6; Psalm 120:1-4; Psalm 133A:1-4.
