Is there something that you are waiting for? What is it, and how long have you been waiting? Are you going through something difficult that doesn’t seem to end? I was in seminary for 8 years, and that seemed like a long time. For the first 4-5 years it seemed like there was no endContinue reading “How long have you been waiting?”
So to continue where we left off, you are rich, and you are not paying your workers fair wages! Yes, you. Take a look at the tag on the shirt you are wearing right now. Where was it made? What is the name of the person who made it? Chances are they were not paidContinue reading “Paying our workers”

As a kid I was, and as an adult I still am, fascinatedContinue reading “What are you waiting for?”
This post is late because I was away for the first half of the week enjoying Dads & Lads camp with my son at Twin Pines. It is a kid’s paradise. Twin Pines has a variety of camps, and they still have room this summer. Check them out here. But now to discuss this pastContinue reading “Taking back our words”
Thanks to those of you that joined us for the sermon discussion on Sunday, it was excellent! Let’s keep the discussion going. Have you been thinking more about what James wrote?
