This week Pastor Burkey invites us to pursue the power of life in the third chair as Paul lays out in Philippians 2:1-11:

1st Chair -- Put God in first place in your life. 

2nd Chair -- Place the needs of others before my own.

3rd Chair -- Seek to respond with a humble heart.

This week we to continue to develop a spiritual habit called “Lectio Divina” (Spiritual Reading):

  • Reflect/Meditatio
  • Respond/Oratio
  • Rest/Contemplatio
  • Resolve/Incarnatio

Pastor Burkey & Pastor Travis have found Lectio Divina to be a powerful tool for them to hear God speaking into their daily life as each of them engages in His Word. Here are the guidelines that they use, and the following are six days of passages for this week:


Day 1: Read/Lectio: Philippians 2:1-2; Phrase: ________________________________________

Day 2: Read/Lectio: Philippians 2:3-4; Phrase: ________________________________________
