This Sunday at Dakota we will have our annual mid-year financial report followed by a slightly time shortened sermon which in an unfortunate, yet actually unrelated coincidence, is entitled; “Patience in Suffering”.
Having sternly warned the rich oppressors who are unjustly holding back wealth for themselves without care for those who are wounded by their greed; James now seamlessly transitions into a discussion of Christian suffering.
The passage answers two important questions related to the topic:
What is required of the suffering Christian?
What encouragement is available to those who suffer?
I hope to see you all Sunday morning.
