Speaker: Michael Deckman
Topics: Faithfulness, Hope, Obedience

Faith and it’s actions

Speaker: Rodney Horst
Topics: actions, Faith

James says that a person is justified by what they do and not by faith alone. Is this a contradiction in Scripture? Why? A reminder that Christ is the focal point and foundation of our faith. Two examples of faith in action are Abraham and Rahab. The Christian life is not about doing things in our own strength – rather it is about God working in and through us.  Text: James 2:14-26

The Most Dangerous Beast in the World

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: blessing, cursing, the tongue

As the strength of a horse can be controlled by a bridle and a large ship turned by a small rudder, likewise, the human tongue is small but powerful. Uncontrolled, its fire can set a forest ablaze and its poison is deadly. In the “Faith that Moves” series, consider God’s redeeming grace through the tongue of everyday Christ-followers.  Text: James 3:1-18

What favortism is and why it is wrong

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: excellence, favortism, mercy, unity

Favoritism and her cronies nepotism and racism project a toxic vibe that has no place in a community of Christ followers. In Christ, all people are welcomed equally regardless of dress, social standing, race, color, history, and even family connections. James, the brother of Jesus, invites us to examine carefully how we view and treat one another. God chooses to show mercy over favoritism. We too ought to choose mercy over favoritism.  Text: James 2:1-13; Galatians 3:26-29

Doing the Word

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics:

James declares Christ-followers are “doers” of faith. Consider how the “doing of a doer” remains centered in the path between two ditches of faith and works in #2 of the Faith that Moves series.  Text: James 1: 19-27

How People of Faith Respond to Trials

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus

The letter of James, written by the blood brother of Jesus, calls us to a living, breathing, active, visible faith. It shows us a faith that moves. In these opening verses we are presented with the secret to a faith that moves with steadfast joy through life’s darkest and fiercest trials. Faith moves! James the brother of Jesus shows us how.  Text: James 1:1-18
