How to do Lent, part 2
James 3 - Controlling your mouth
James addresses a growing issue of too many early church members wanting to become teachers and doing so through divisive, careless and unloving speech. He warns them that the tongue is a restless and uncontrollable evil that burns more than it lights the path. So how then are we able to use our words to speak life instead death?
Simply put, only the abiding presence of the Spirit of God in us can control what comes out of us.
- We must submit our lives to the resurrection power of God in order that He will become Lord of our words
- We must be willing to slow down the rate at which we speak. Be slow to anger, slow to speak and quick to listen.

Meals and food kits for the weekend
It will be another cold weekend in Aurora and we will have about 20 people staying at the Stay Inn on 38th, near Peoria and I-70. We can use some hot meals and we are also running low on food kits again as we had 60 people for 6 days last week. Thank you to so many of you that have helped and know how much we appreciate your help. If this is something that you can't do, would you be willing to think of people, groups or churches that might lend a hand? If so, please email me at email@example.com
I especially want to thank those of you that have given food, money and time to our homeless friends this winter, It truly helps to know that others are thinking about you in a difficult time.
