Sermon Notes

The letter of James (in the New Testament) shows one of the church’s early pastors going about his work of confronting, diagnosing, and dealing with areas of misbelief & misbehavior that had turned up in congregations committed to his care. DEEP & LIVING WISDOM is the topic. Now WISDOM is not primarily knowing the truth, although it certainly includes that. It is also the skill of living out that truth. What good is TRUTH if we don’t know how to live it out? And what good is INTENTION if we can’t sustain it? Join Grace Family for this series of conversations… seeking God’s WISDOM so our lives will become Louder Than Words.
We all know that pain and suffering are a part of life … it’s an inescapable reality.  So many of our prayers (whether or not we would call ourselves religious) are centered on asking for some sort of healing – recovery from a disease, an injury, or a tragic accident.  And God DOES want us to pray about those things, but we discover today that the healing that God wants us to pursue is something much deeper, much more abiding that we could really imagine.
