Paul turns his focus now on addressing the elders of the church. To be an elder takes commitment, responsibility, service as overseers, and being examples (not lords- like the Roman government did). Service in this capacity should be delivered willingly and eagerly, to be powerful, effective, and relevant as true representatives of Jesus Christ. Pastor Troy also connects Christmas to Peter's letter to the elders and shares a very interesting experience with a stranger who visited this church. Also featured this week is some powerful Christmas music performances.
