    Grace that shapes our prayers (5:7-20)

    Grace that shapes our prayers (5:7-20)

    James rounds off his letter calling us to patiently wait for the Lord to return, and commit to praying heartily in all seasons, for all reasons.


    Questions to dig into over a cup of tea:
    How does the Lord’s coming give us perspective through suffering and trials?

    How does James’ letter as a whole help us to persevere?  What will it look like for you to persevere?

    Consider your different circumstances - what will it look like for you to pray in faith?

    How does the end of the letter encourage you to live life alongside church family more deeply?

    Is there anyone you know wandering away from the truth that you need to commit to praying for regularly?


    Tea and Biscuit Footnotes
    A cup of ‘Jam & Toast’ Tea for Sarah, and a cup of Yorkshire tea with a slice of Victoria Sponge Cake for Felicity.

    Grace that shapes our plans & prosperity (4:13-5:6)

    Grace that shapes our plans & prosperity (4:13-5:6)

    James warns his brothers and sisters about the folly of unbelievers who seek to dictate their own futures, and use wealth for unjust gain.


    Questions to dig into over a cup of tea:
    James is speaking about ‘worldy’ groups of people in these verses, it’s not the ‘brothers and sisters’ of the church family but he is telling them about these groups as a warning. What are the characteristics of the two groups? What are the issues?

    How does this help us to understand the world around us?

    How are we tempted towards this kind of friendliness with the world in how we think and behave?

    Any ways in which we might be unwittingly, or complacently, involved in injustices i.e. ethics of what we consume, whether people are oppressed in producing what we use?

    How do these verses push us back on the grace of chapter 4?

    Tea and Biscuit Footnotes
    A cup of hot apple & mango squash for Sarah, and a cup of Yorkshire Grey with a malted milk biscuit for Felicity.

    Grace that shapes our repentance (4:1-12)

    Grace that shapes our repentance (4:1-12)

    Both what to do with our double-mindedness and God’s answer reach a climax this week as James helps us to see the heart of the gospel.

    Questions to dig deeper, over a cup of tea:
    How do our desires and motives expose our over-friendliness with the world? What does it look like to see, confess and mourn our double-mindedness? What stops us taking our sin seriously and lamenting it?How does this help us delight in God’s lifting grace? We’re never without God’s grace, but how does it change the way we feel about being ‘lifted’ as we go through this process?How can we help each other run towards God’s grace, and desire heavenly wisdom above all else? 

    Tea and Biscuit Footnotes
    A cup of hot water and a digestive biscuit for Sarah, and a teapot with a home made chocolate digestive for Felicity.

    Grace that shapes our speech (3:1-18)

    Grace that shapes our speech (3:1-18)

    In this week’s episode we take a look at James’ powerful words about the tongue, and what it looks like to pursue heavenly wisdom in relation to how we use our words.

    As ever, this is just the beginning of a conversation.  We wholly recommend chatting over these things further with someone else as you consider the weight of God’s word on your heart.


    Questions to dig deeper, over a cup of tea:

    - how does James’ use of pictures help us to see the true impact of our tongues?
    - In what ways do you see your tongue exposing your heart?
    - Texts, emails, Social Media, phone calls, in person - where do you need to commit to be more watchful and prayerful over your tongue?
    - What will it look like to let this chapter from James sink deeply into your heart - both the words on the tongue, and the words on God’s heavenly wisdom?


    Tea and Biscuit Footnotes
    A cup of hot water and a ‘Jam n’ Cream’ biscuit for Sarah, and a cup of Yorkshire tea with a ginger nut biscuit for Felicity.

    Grace that shapes our actions (2:14-26)

    Grace that shapes our actions (2:14-26)

    This week we are joined by Sam Allberry who helps us to tackle an essential but challenging part of James’ letter.

    As ever, this is just the beginning of a conversation.  We wholly recommend chatting over these things further with someone else as you consider the weight of God’s word on your heart.


    Questions to dig deeper, over a cup of tea:

    - What really struck you as you read the passage for yourself? How did it make you feel?
    - James challenges his readers to have true faith.  How does this passage encourage us to pursue true faith?
    - How is our double mindedness exposed? What do you need to repent of and pray through in light of this part of James?
    - Why does all true faith begin and end with gazing at the work of Christ?

    Sam’s brilliant book ‘James for you’ can be found here (remember to use the discount below!)

    Tea and Biscuit Footnotes
    A Yorkshire tea for both sisters, and a malted milk for Felicity. Sam thinks Jammy Dodgers definitely have cream in the middle, and is partial to a custard cream.

Perfect post baby listening!!

This podcast was recommended to me by friends after I told them I was struggling to get back into reading my bible post baby. I’ve loved going through Habakkuk and hearing it applied so meaningfully and relevantly for me when in the thick of the newborn phase!!

Wonderful honest Bible study

I have loved listening to Sarah & Felicity read through the Bible with such honesty & wisdom in identifying patterns & themes that point to Jesus. They are not afraid to admit the enormity of the challenge God’s word brings to our sinful hearts but have so much practical application and encouragement I find listening so helpful. Also enjoy their brief practical discussions such as finding the time to read the Bible with young children. Highly recommend sitting down with a cup of tea & listening in.

Fantastic Bible-based podcast

I love this! Sarah and Felicity have a really natural and gentle way of humbly exploring the Bible together in a way that challenges my heart and inspires my love for God’s word. Their 20 minute episodes are perfect to listen to in the car, on a walk, or while doing the washing up. I often feel like I’m sat at the same table with my own cuppa - and of course a biscuit! Thanks for all you do, can’t wait to hear more.
