Main point summary
The Word of God, and not the anger of man, bears the fruit of righteousness
James 1:19-21
g Know this, my beloved brothers:
My beloved brothers you (must?) know this -
let every person h be quick to hear,
Listen first! (to the gospel, then to the other person - so what I hear the other person say is illuminated by what I know in the gospel)
i slow to speak,
Digest what you have heard and then speak
j slow to anger;
And reserve/rein in your anger
for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
because the anger of man will not let the ROG grow within us
Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness
So throw out all proud, filthy angry behavior
and receive with l meekness the implanted word,
and receive with humble listening the implanted word (read the word, hear it preached)
which is able to save your souls.
because this word is strong to save your souls (make me right with God)

Thank you!  I was helping my daughter for most of May and June and didn't do any arcing since finishing the course..  I'm taking bracketing class now and my daughter finished her project. so I should get back to this now.

This is great, I know you published this a while ago but I only just recently had life slow down enough to participate again. I think the only thing I would change (and I don't recall what my arc looked like) is the progressive of 21a and 21b-c. That looks like an Action-Purpose to me. Also, I love your main point summary! It's so concise and laser-focused.
