Driving in heavy traffic waiting in queues dealing with my spouse ‘s shortcomings waiting to have sex till we are married remaining steadfast under persecution . all of these require the Christian characteristic of patience. James helps us to see the value of developing an attitude and life-style characterised by patience. (James 5:7-12)

Nigel Branken & Family
This sermon audio includes a testimony from Nigel Branken. He and his wife Trish were compelled by their faith and reading of scripture to move with their family into a two-bedroomed apartment in Hillbrow – a notoriously dangerous and neglected part of the city of Johannesburg.
We are a rather ordinary family doing some extraordinary things. We believe as Christians that God is extremely concerned with the brokeness in our city and nation and that He has called each one of us to get involved in making a difference. To bring change we need to see the future prepare for the future and then become the future or in the words of Ghandi we must become the change we want to see in the world. Nigel Branken

(James 1:19-27) How do you know if you ‘ve been doodling in your spiritual life? James is going to challenge us to be good listeners and good doers. In our application of this passage we want to answer the question: why don ‘t we apply God ‘s Word? Could one of these reasons lie at the heart of your doodling. I also want to give you some practical resources to help to apply God ‘s Word to your daily life.
