Battle Plan: Ears and Feet
 I think our deep dive into the Book of James is off to a good start. If the feedback I have gotten this week is any indication, this series will be both relevant and timely. This Sunday we will be looking at the correlation between ears and action, listening and doing! Without a doubt, what we hear or what we think we hear always illicit a reaction. Our mouths are a source for a great deal of divisiveness and debate, mostly because we are crummy listeners and way too eager to get our point across. Modern Social media seems to be the antithesis to the advice we find in James. Social media is all about us being heard, our opinions being platformed, none of it is actually about listening to someone else. James says one of the dangers of being a poor listener is that it promotes anger, and anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering. I just described the cultural climate of our world. James also seems to be concerned with self-deception, our ability to re-write history, we alter our reality, we hide from the truth, we seek the cover of darkness. Listen, there is no such thing as a private Christian, we are children of the light, our faith is a public declaration that Jesus is either Lord of our life or not. Join us Sunday as we look at the relationship between our ears and our actions.
