James and the Giant Peach

Sermon Title

James and the Giant Peach (4 Episodes)
29 Apr 2013 - 19 May 2013

This is a 4 week series, looking at four different themes in the book of James. We start by looking at how to deal with the different trials we all face - something which I know will be relevant to all of us at many points in our lives.

James, the author of this book, was the half brother of Jesus and one of the key leaders in the early church in Jerusalem. James is thought to have been written before AD48, and may well have been the earliest New Testament book. It is a wonderfully practical book, encouraging us to have a faith which changes the way we live. In terms of it's style it is similar to the book of Proverbs, containing a series of 'wise sayings'. It was written to Jewish believers everywhere, rather than being written to a specific church. James was martyred for his faith in AD62.

James talks about our speech more than any other writer in the New Testament. In James 3 he explains that our speech directs where we go in life, it can destroy what we have and shows other people what is going on inside us. But how do you actually control your tongue? Is there a bigger problem going on inside us than just the words that we say?
