This week we on Beside The Burn we turn back to James asking How Do We Cope WIth Suffering?
The Gospel Coalition have produced a playlist of 100 songs inspired by the book of James, and I intend to share some of those songs each day on the Blog, but you can listen to the full playlist during the next few weeks as we continue our studies in this book. I have benefited greatly from listening to these songs over and over again as I have asked God to speak from His word.
You can stream the playlist on Spotify or on Apple Music right now.
Here is the song for today
- The Lord’s Highway,” Claire Holley
- “Eyes on the Prize,” Jill Phillips
- “Wayfaring Stranger,” Sister Sinjin

I’ll add the songs to this playlist each day.

J.John Facing the Canon with Dan Morrice.
Many of you will know Dan from the documentary he made with our own Louise Glenn about the Chilean Miners, and his book which featured on the blog, “Finding The Peacemakers”.
Best-selling author Kenneth Taylor was well-known for his faithful retelling of Bible stories in a way which engaged young children. This newly illustrated collection of more than 120 Bible stories from his Classic Bible Storybook present the truths of the whole Bible in a language that is understandable for kids. Each story has 3-4 comprehension questions to help children easily grasp Biblical concepts.
Reading this book will help young ones love stories of the Bible and may even help adults fall in love again with God's Word.
