Knowing what those look like can be tricky however. Where do we go to seek them How can we approach them How can we maintain those relationships despite our own weaknesses Sue Edwards is happy to lead the way through Scripture to discover and maintain beloved organic friendships. Pauls letter to early Christians is an ideal place to find these answers. This short letter highlights the skills that strengthen authentic connec- tionsskills like trust humility healthy self-sacrifice a generous spirit and more. It also sheds light on how to overcome toxic connection-killers like envy comparison and critical attitudes. Philipians Discovering Joy Through Relationship works its way through Pauls words as a model for deep authentic commu- nity and healthy relationships between believers. When readers reach the end theyll have a thorough sense of the content of this ancient letter and of its relevance for today. Although Paul was under house arrest he was able to draw joy from his relationships and we can do the same no matter our circumstances. Edwards strives to ensure that this Bible study will do more than transfer intellectual information it will also transform hearts and inspire practice and application.
