PPT slides for "How to Sail Through Life," James 3:1-18

A member of my class, Dave Richards, volunteered to teach this week’s lesson, “How to Sail Through Life.” Dave has taught previously in other churches, but he is new to using PowerPoint. He prepared a set of PPT slides for the lesson, which he agreed to share with you.

Also, David Parker suggested a contest regarding this lesson that might add some fun to your class.

I like the contest, I like the lesson. It could contain a little guilt trip if we haven't always been careful.
I will open with
'CAVEAT: DO AS I SAY AND NOT AS I DO' on the board.
That is if we don't have any NEW visitors which is rare for our class of 70+'s.

Congratulations on the 1001th posting, you are providing a great uplift. For me that goes if I do or if I don't use your ideas. Just a wonderful opening for the lesson.

Keep up the good work! (PLEASE)

First Baptist Church of Conroe Texas. That's up the road from ServingHim 26.5 miles/39 minutes.

Hi Jim, thanks for the comment. About your opening caveat, is that a personal warning about the class teacher? :-)

Seriously, I appreciate your faithfulness, and your kind remarks. May the Lord bless you mightily as you teach this Sunday.

P.S. How's your mobility these days?

I don't get it! Having read the passage several times and studied on it all week I don't think James is trying to teach us "how to sail through life" - wrong title, impression, wrong approach!

Dr. Sam Tullock agrees with you. See the opening remark in his lesson commentary for “How to Sail Through Life.”
