Dr. Beckwith reflects on Philippians

Happy Friday, Team!

What a lovely but short week it’s been. The week just flew by. But, as short as it has been, I still look forward to this weekend. Have I ever mentioned how much I like sitting in my backyard? Maybe I have said that one fact about me once or twice.

So, this week you will begin to see the new way we will be doing my Friday Inspiration—you get to hear me rather than read my long messages. I must agree with our Marketing team that speaking directly to you gives you a chance to listen to my heart.

But for now, let me share a little of my heart this Friday. As I went to the scriptures to find a word I could share that might inspire or encourage you today, God gave me exactly what I needed. First, let me give a shout-out to Alfreda Wright! I was so moved by the devotion she brought to us Thursday morning. Alfreda is an inspirational force in our San Bernardino rural area. She is such an encourager and what she shared was powerful. As I drove, I could hear myself saying to God, “Thank you.”

So, as I prepared for this weekly inspiration, I thought of Alfreda and the Apostle Paul. Paul wrote his love letter to the Philippian people that reads, “I thank my God every time I remember you, constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you….” So, from me to you this fabulous Friday, know that I appreciate all you do for the people we serve. When I think of you, I thank God for your commitment to our clients and the mission of LSSSC.

This message is short because soon, you will see the video! Have a wonderful weekend, and God bless you.

  1. 1 – Attend at least one Fostering Community Care event during the calendar year
  2. 2 – Host or invite and bring 10-15 guests to one Fostering Community Care event within 3 months of your attending one yourself.

  4. 4 – Ambassadors will complete their commitment after bringing 10-15 persons within the 3 month time period. An Ambassador has the option to complete after one term, continue for another 3 month term or move into another role on the team.
