James 5:13-20 – Healing and salvation

What should we expect when we pray for healing?  If the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective, who is "a righteous person"?  (Gary Davidge, 12 September 2021)

1 Peter 1:22–2:3 – Loving, leaving, longing

Sunday 5 September was the official launch of THCC Lighthouse. For the video recording see YouTube: 05th September 2021 - THCC Sunday Service @ Lighthouse

James 5:1-12 – Be patient

How does James' thundering denunciation of rich people fit with the rest of his letter? And what does it mean for all of us?  (Neville Reid, 29 August 2021)

James 4:13-17 – Entrusting the future to God

We may say, "God willing", but do we truly depend on God for the future, or are we still worldly in our thinking?  On the other hand, should we plan at all?  (Tony Uddin, 22 August 2021)

James 3:13-4:12 – Repent, you hypocrites! 

In this passage, James addresses Christian believers in extremely harsh terms.  What is he driving at?  How is this a message of life and grace?  (Erik Pattison, 15 August 2021)

James 3 – The power of the tongue

James warns us that the tongue is capable of great evil – but with the grace of God, it can sow the seeds of great good.  (Neville Reid, 1 August 2021. The original recording failed, so this is a re-recording, including the Bible reading)

James 2:14-26 – Faith and works

How does James' teaching square with the rest of the New Testament?  And what sort of faith and what sort of works is God looking for?  (Gary Davidge, 25 July 2021)

James 2:1-13 – Favouritism

As one body in Christ, we must value every person, and not ignore or belittle anyone.  Heaven help us if we think we are OK by keeping some other laws but not this one!  (Bex White, 18 July 2021)
