“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” Philippians 4:8 (NIV)  

At Turning Point Church, we have endeavored to be a learning organization; a community of learning. Authors and leaders with helpful insight have been invited to speak into how we do church to help make us better Christ-followers.

On Sunday October 26th, we are going to take another step on that path, as we kick off our 40 Days of Joy spiritual growth campaign! We’ll all be reading Tommy Newberry’s book 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life and aligning our Sunday gatherings, midweek gatherings, and small group curriculum along that same exact theme.

Our slogan for the 40 days is “Think 4:8.” Rather than emphasizing that we “ought to” heed the apostle Paul’s above admonition, we’re going to be focusing on “how to” actually change our thinking to that which is more Christ-like. David Bruce and others will be leading us through this journey. I can’t wait to see how the Spirit changes us through this process.

One caveat: if you don’t like orange and work at Home Depot, you’re kind of out of luck. Similarly, you’re going to see a lot of yellow with our signage and swag items. So if yellow isn’t your favorite color, this will be an excellent opportunity for you to put your newly found 4:8 powers to work. 🙂
