Intro:
Been looking @ beatitudes so we can better understand the values of Jesus’ Kingdom – so we can better live out that Kingdom here in Missoula.
B/c if we can embody that Kingdom now, the world will take notice.What we’ve been noticing is that beatitudes aren’t so much an introduction to a whole new religion – not really a list of dos and don’ts or new set of new behaviors – but a whole new way looking @ world - a set of glasses so to speak that help us see God more clearly.Today we want to look at how the beatitudes impact the way we do community – and community is a buzzword today – everybody wants it… everybody talks about it… but Phil 2:1-11 shows us what the word truly means – it’s a compound of two words comm and unity – common unity.And common unity is important for us to hear right now – listen how the Apostle Paul ends chapter 1 before beginning this section on Unity – Already read about how Paul looks @ people, circumstances, & last week opposition & adversity in our lives.
And this week P tells us how he looks @ unity w/in xian comty.High school I had one most amazing experiences of unity when I part of basketball team made run @ state tournament.
It was amazing b/c nothing all that special about our team.
None us all that athletic.
Our starting center only 6'2".
We weren't particularly strong, so we didn't out-muscle teams we played.
But we regularly beat teams easily w/ players were taller & faster & more skilled than us.
By end season we had record of 25-3, & even though ended up losing championship game, had amassed more wins than any other team that year.
What set us apart?First all, our five starters were best friends.
We spent as much time together off court as on court.
Only guys from high school I continue to stay touch with.
We had been playing together since 7th grade & had coach we trusted - we believed in his game plan.
We worked hard in practice and pushed each other.
We were unified in goals & mission.
Our unity provided edge overcome physical weaknesses.
When we played, five individuals became one unit.This kind story not unique in sporting world.
But it's fitting analogy to what P envisions for church as well.
As we went through that season, we faced teams had tremendous players who just didn't play well with each other.
When things aren't working well for team, coach needs be able diagnose things & make adjustments.
As all know, as church, we are facing a lot change & adversity this year & we need spend time Dr. Paul and consider how he looks at unity by thinking about 1) P's diagnosis of our problem; 2) P's prescription for unity; and 3) how we get it on it.

Phil 1:
1. Paul's diagnosis of our problem
1. Paul's diagnosis of our problem
P's letter Phil's one most gentle letters wrote any of churches.
In most gentle way possible, P diagnoses problem, that if ignored, will slowly eat away their commty.
It's problem disunity & division.
Division church like parasite - slowly consuming everything ingested by it's host from inside out.
A person w/ parasite eats good food which out produce health & vitality, but instead gets more & more sick & emaciated.
That's what division does church.
Slowly kills it's health & vitality from inside out.P addresses this in Phils in positive way by encouraging them - v.2, "be same mind, having same love, being in full accord and of one mind."
P's trying, in most gentle way, hint at fact that he knows there frictions & tensions in church.
