Cost and Admission

This event is free to attend.

Philippians 2:5-11 is the heart of Paul's letter, where he gives us his model for how to live discerningly and wisely, and therefore joyfully. His model is Christ, and specifically the mind of Christ. We'll talk about what characterizes the mind of Christ, and how we can put it on, both as individuals and as a community.


Janelle Aijian

Janelle Aijian grew up in Canada (mostly), though she's also lived in Kenya and Texas. She first came to Biola as a student in 2003, where she tried out majoring in Biblical Studies and Political Science before landing on Philosophy. She got her PhD in Philosophy from Baylor university, where she pursued a question that's always fascinated and troubled her: How should we think about humans having knowledge of God? She's still interested in that question, and in experiences of doubt in a Christian's life, but she's also studying the idea of acedia, which is what's happening when we avoid or distract ourselves from God's good, difficult calling. She lives in La Mirada with her husband Phillip and two kids, Malcolm and Evelyn.
