Communities of Hope,

There is a small part of our bodies, attached to the bottom portion of our mouths, that have disproportionate influence over our lives. In the next section of his letter, James deals with the dynamics of our tongues and our utter inability to control them. From our mouths come blessing one day and cursing the next- no different than what Jesus received on his entry into Jerusalem. If you have a pattern of being hurtful with your words, have been a victim of verbal abuse or know someone who is in the midst of struggling to use their words for goodness, truth and beauty join us this Sunday. I look forward to seeing you at the Gathering for Palm Sunday!

On behalf of the Elder Team,

Joey
