One of the great joys of speaking at events is getting to see all the stunning, beautiful, creative event ideas. The best part: YOU can use them at your gatherings of friends, book clubs, Bible studies, and retreats, too.
When I saw this at an event recently, I thought… “That’s BRILLIANT!” Do you recognize what it is?
I’ve been teaching the Bible for more than 25 years, and if there’s one book that has taught me that what I do matters, it’s the book of James. I suspect you’ve felt that way, too.
James calls us to examine the gaps between what we believe and how we’re living. A call to action, the letter of James is clear: what you do matters!
If you take the Sermon on the Mount and overlay it with the book of James, you’ll find oodles of connection. Penned by the half-brother of Jesus, James sounds more like Jesus than any other New Testament writer. The short letter is packed with doable and down-to-earth teaching, golden treasures of wisdom, and a timely call for believers everywhere to grow into maturity.
Join beloved Bible teacher, Margaret Feinberg, in a rich, fresh study of James that will uncover the genuine markers of real faith, equip you to break free from old patterns by developing new practices, and discover how the Father of heavenly lights treasures you.
Leif and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. In full disclosure, Leif was sick, but we still managed to slip away (even if it included masks).
Think about this: I’ve lived with the same man for t-w-e-n-t-y years.
Yet I just learned of something he’s been doing for years and NEVER told me.
As a writer, I spend a lot of time in a room all by myself. Honestly, it gets lonely. I definitely have introverted tendencies, but I LOVE people.
When I sit for days on end wrestling with ideas and research and scripture, I can start to wonder, Will anyone see what I’m seeing? Will this idea connect? Will this Jesus-aha! moment be as meaningful to them as it is to me?
I sit alone, thinking of you, praying for you, longing to connect with you. . . .
