Turkey Bowl II

The Battle for the 2nd Armagedon Cup ended in a blowout on November 20, 2005. The Bucks handled the Jerico Jammers 55-20 by shutting down their high octane offense.

The first half of Turkey Bowl II saw defense rule the day as Brian Bowers of the Jammers intercepted and ran back a Bucks' Ryan Russell pass for a touchdown. Despite this defensive effort, the Bucks still succeeded in scoring two touchdowns to take a 12-6 lead into halftime. This halftime score gave rise to the thought that the entire chase for the Armagedon Cup would be a defensive struggle. This belief was quickly found wanting as the Bucks stormed out of the locker room to increase their lead to 37-6.

The Bucks' Jessica Bowen (the MVP of the game) dealt the crushing blow to the Jammers early in the second half with two scores in two plays. She first caught a short touchdown pass from Russell and then promptly turned around, intercepted a pass for the Jammer's Dennis Craft, and returned it 15 yards for another score.

The Jammer's attempted a hurry up offense which nothced them their first offensive touchdown of the game, but it was too little, too late. With a touchdown reception by Brian Chapman and Jonathan Billings, along with a touchdown run from Andrew Carson, the Bucks continued to pour on the pressure culminating in an end of game 40 yard interception return for a touchdown by Cord Green, one of his 3 interceptions on the day.

The End

Wednesday, November 9
James 5:7-20

This is it. The end of the James study. If you missed Wednesday night then you missed the culmination of 4 months of study.

The book of James is full of practical advice for the Christian life. So, after studying James, we should have a pretty good idea of how Christians are supposed to live, now we just need to do it. So how can we do it? In James 5:7-20 we find 8 practical ways to "live the life" of a believer.

How to Successfully Live the Christian Life

1) Have Patience-Wait Actively for the Lord. (v7-8)

2) Don't fight among yourselves. Christians fighting with Christians does not help anyone successfully live the Christian life. (v9)

3) Study and be encouraged by the example of the saints that have gone the Bible and in Church history up to today.

4) Live above blame. Live in such a way that you can ALWAYS be trusted (v12)

5) Faithful prayer and praise...for and with those around you. (v13-15, 17-18)

6) Confess your sins to each other. (Accountability #1) (v 16)

7) Don't let each other off the hook for sin. (Accountability #2) (v19)

8) Consistently Witness. (v20)

So now, let's go out and do it...don't just!!!
