Nov. 22: Faith & Suffering, Pt. 2
Nov 22, 2020
The Rev. Alex Shuttleworth

In the final sermon of our James series, James moves on to talk about some practical things we can do in suffering, especially in prayer. Sometimes people say that offering to pray is not enough, or is just the least we can do. James describes it as the most we can do. This attitude reveals that our trust is often still in human endeavor. For James, works are the outworking of faith, not a substitute for it or a precursor to it.

Readings from this service:
James 5: 13-20
Psalm 145: 17-21
Luke 22: 39-46
