Lighthouse Baptist Church has a Summer Elective Series for their Sunday School program. This is my second summer teaching this subject. Last year we covered extensively James 1-2. This summer we cover James 3-5.
Today’s lesson covers James 3:1-2. In this passage, James is getting ready to launch into his discussion on us controlling our tongue but these two verses focus on exhorting teachers to be sure they are teaching for the right reasons. His exhortation to teachers is strong.
Listen as we discuss faith, aspiring teachers and God’s condemnation to unworthy teachers.

Three Times I Asked Him is one of my favorite songs. I remember hearing Ann Gibbs singing this song when I was a teenager and listening to her testimony. I sang this song after completing a 9 week course on the book of James Soaring Through Life with Wisdom and Grace. I was thinking of a special lady […]
I was going through my videos to watch and came across this video of our 2011 Easter Cantata In His Hands. Enjoyed seeing James and Brad in action as the keys players. In His Hands In this poignant gospel presentation, In His Hands, the writer skillfully weaves the perspective of two narrators (James Olinda and Brad Joines): one believing […]
