8/1/2021 To 8/29/2021

"Timely wisdom for our world today.” That’s how Dr. Martha Moore-Keish describes the Book of James in her recent commentary. (James. A Theological Commentary. Westminster/John Knox Press, 2019.) She goes on to cite how the Book of James is unique in the New Testament for its focus on actions. In chapter 2 verse 17, James writes that “faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” In this sermon series, we will explore four ways that faith is lived according to James. Together, we will see how James, the brother of Jesus and leader of the early Christian church in Jerusalem, provides practical wisdom for how we follow Jesus today.
