Join Pastor Jeff for a sermon series beginning this Sunday, September 26, and a concurrent “Pastor’s Bible Study on the Book of James,” Thursdays at Noon & 5:30pm, Sept 30, Oct 7, 14, 21.
The Letter of James belongs to the wisdom literature tradition in the Bible – like Proverbs and Ecclesiastes. Unlike Paul’s epistles, which were addressed to churches, James is more of an exhortation to individuals regarding the Christian life. The basics of faith are assumed; it speaks to how one lives out one’s spirituality. With its 54 imperative verbs, James is an urgent demand for an active faith. It’s been said that the Letter of James is like taking a cold shower – uncomfortable but invigorating! Together we'll read this practical book and consider its concrete advice for living faithfully.
