A Call for Unity

Session 3.38 for September 18, 2011

Paul writes to the church in Philippi from prison, but he is also in a prison of his own. In this prison, Paul ponders two choices in a very difficult, stressful, potentially life threatening situation. He has reached a point in his life where both choices are good. To die or to live are both fruitful and fulfilling. Because of this perspective, Paul is free to act, speak... regardless of the consequences. And he wants the Philippian church to live in the same way. What about us?

Dear Baptist Today Editors,

In teaching my Sunday School class, using the Baptist Today literature which we subscribe to, I have tried to listen to all the media suggestions (musical selections from the internet) for applications for teaching the lesson. Unfortunately, most of the audible words from the music are unintelligible for diciphering what the singer is saying. As an example for September 18, the guitar music sounds are quite clear (and entertaining) for the most part, but only about 10-20% of the words by the singers are understood. I wonder how much trouble it would be to show the words being sung below or with the singer on these web-site selections? (Probably not technically or legally possible?) I like the Tony Cartledge lessons (and contributors' additions) but the web selections' audio quality leaves something to be desired. Thanks.
