This is the Life!

Good evening from Pamukkale!

Our second day in Turkey was amazing! We started our day at Hierapolis - a city known for its thermal hot springs and travertine cliffs. It took us the entire morning to take in all the lessons God had for us there. After a hearty lunch, we ventured just a few miles to the east to visit Colossae. Although the site has not yet been excavated, we learned some powerful lessons from the book of Philemon. We finished our day at Laodicea where we were able to better understand the context of Jesus words to the church in Revelation 3:14-22.

The theme of our trip is, “This is the Life”. The first century world of Rome had a very strong message about what the good life ought to be. The Gospel paints a different picture of human thriving and we are looking closely at how the two messages compete for our heart’s attention. It’s been a very eye-opening study!

We remain in good health and spirits and treasure your prayers for us!

Matt
