Pastor Greg Whaley continues his sermon series entitled Snapshots of Faith by looking at James 3:1-12. From this passage Pastor Whaley  looks at two over arching ideas: the role of a teacher in the church and the power of words. How important are teachers of the Word, and why must they be careful? How powerful is the tongue and what does it say about us? Jesus says "out of the abundance of our heart the mouth speaks." Listen to this sermon and be challenged about your role in the church and the words you speak.
