The entire gang is reunited and back to talking about James. We tackle James 1:16-19 and what is it that James wants us to know. What deception are we to be avoiding? God gives good gifts and we discuss it!
Can we disagree? We walk through Basel and the singing in the church services help bring to light a difference in the Swiss Reformation, and how it was handled. Some lessons about disagreements and degrees of disagreement are made.
The podcast gives some thoughts about marriage while waiting on Rev. Powell to return. As a follow up then to advice and thoughts on seminaries, we get some advice and thoughts on marriage.
Sometimes it is good to get an up-close look at an incident to see a little more how the Reformation looked. It wasn’t all Institutes and Sausage Affairs. Sometimes it was a little rough around the edges. Take a close look as we walk through Basel in 1530.
With the group down a man, we take a time out of James to talk about the ministry, and particularly preparing for it, studying for it, and avoiding burn out. Hopefully there is somethings in here for you to think about regarding your pastor.
We take a quick look at some of the responses to the rejection at Augsburg from the perspective of the Strasbourg pastors. Their letters and their actions after shine a helpful light on things for us and how we should respond today to a culture that is hostile to our faith.
Everyone is back to discuss the next several verses in James. You don’t want to miss a minute of this examination of James 1.
