We’ve had kids all over this church who have broken bones in the past year or so. Nathan Mounts broke his elbow. It’s in a cast, but it’ll be all better before…

In Matthew 13, Jesus confronts the hypocrisy of the Pharisees. Yet, we too have our own hypocrisy to confront. How are we like the Pharisees, and how can we avoid the trap they fell into? Listen to Mary share about Jesus' solution.
James continues to press us on being doers and not just hearers of scripture. Our communication is extremely powerful. Are we using it to praise and to curse? To build and to tear down? Is Jesus Lord of your tongue?
How should we treat the silence of the Scriptures in relation to what is authorized? Does the silence of Scriptures authorize, permit, or forbid?
