Seven of Jesus' Parables:  Economic Wisdom for Today

"Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing."   (James 1:2-4, New Living Translation)

Responses from webinar participants

I just have to say this.  I'm feeling the Holy Spirit has come upon all of us attending this wonderful thought- provoking webinar.   Now is the time our world needs us,  and our care and devotion to help others fill this need the world  is hungry for.

As you noted, "solidarity" is the key word, not 'solitary'! We are not alone on this journey...

Thank you Madelon for the rich sharing this evening, helping us to see the Bible as a timely guide for us today.  Love the cohesion and the sense that we are all working out something to better our lives and the world.  They were (Biblical characters), and we are; they were not alone, and we are not alone. It was 'writ large' in this evening’s teachings.

Thank you for the very good Bible Roads chat today  and also for sending me the replay.We are all being so blessed with all your knowledge of the Bible; what a treasure for all of us.Thank you so much for this wonderful sharing of history. I really like all the artwork, and I can see them all just like that in my mind. That was a very cool picture of Paul and looking forward to next week.
