The book of James stands unique in the New Testament for its no-nonsense, practical, proverbial wisdom. There is very little cryptic language or mysterious imagery in the way that it calls people to live out discipleship in their lives.
This fall, we will offer a series that will challenge those who feel that faith should be kept to one's self.
Join us each week either in person or online.
September 30 - Blessed in What We Do
For James, faith is neither radically privatized nor solely personal. It is to be expressed outwardly, to improve one's relationships with others and to help those in need.
October 7 - Body and Soul
The body matters - using our abilities to meet physical needs. It beckons us to speak directly and boldly about the barriers we build that divide us from each other.
OCTOBER 14 - Taming the Tongue
The tongue can do great damage in life and relationships.
"For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way." ~James 3:2
OCTOBER 21 - The good LifE
JAMEs 3:13-4:3, 7-8a
Gentleness and wisdom are the keys to commitment.
"The wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure. It is also peace-loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others." ~James 3:17
OCTOBER 28 - Powerful Prayer
Prayer is the healing balm for physical suffering and broken communities.
