Live as Aliens and Strangers

Sparrow Conference 2017

Our time on earth is short, and everything we do either illuminates or obscures the gospel. In this session from the 2017 Sparrow Conference, author and Bible teacher Jen Wilkin opens James 5 and challenges us to live as aliens and strangers, just as James did before us.

Jen Wilkin is a speaker, writer, and teacher of women’s Bible studies. She has a background in women’s ministry, and has organized and led studies for women in home, church, and parachurch contexts. Jen is the author of Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with Both Our Hearts and Our Minds and None Like Him. Jen and her husband have four children and live in Flower Mound, Texas.
