Human beings have a handful of primary emotions that shape the quality of their lives, things like fear, anger, guilt, and sadness. Most of these emotions are experienced as negative, but one is positive--JOY! What is the true nature of joy? What prevent us from experiencing it, and what helps us access it?
This new series on JOY! will help us answer these questions and teach us what it means to be truly happy. In this first message, Pastor Mark focuses on the the difference between joy and physical pleasure, as well as the possibility of joy when we suffer.
(This series is based on "The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World" by Desmond Tutu and the Dalia Lama [Avery 2016].)
