Well, Chris hadn't talked about the Oilers in a while, so you knew you were due for an NHL-centric sermon illustration. Here we talk about some of the failings of the local hockey team and how they demonstrate an inability to see the Bigger Picture. This is in stark contrast to Paul's personal update to his Philippian friends. Despite some tremendously difficult circumstances, Paul is able to rejoice. Why? Because he has his eyes on the bigger picture.
PS: big shout out to mentoring pastor Tim Gurnett, who was and is a huge influence on Chris. Take THAT, Gurnett!
