New Bible Study begins Wednesday, January 12th
The Book of James, controversial because of its emphasis on “good works,” is sometimes called the "Proverbs of the New Testament".
When a person becomes a Christian by faith, new life begins, and inevitably that life must express itself through “spiritual motion,” or good deeds. In James' words, “What good is it ... if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?” (2:14). Genuine faith in Christ should always result in actions that demonstrate faith. As Luther himself said, "You are saved by faith alone, but if faith is alone, it is not faith."
Our study of the Book of James begins on Wednesday, January 12th and will continue each Wednesday evening for eight weeks. We will begin at 6:00 P.M. with worship that includes Holy Communion, followed by dinner in the Parish Hall. A $5.00 per person donation is requested to help defray the cost of the meal, but if you cannot afford the cost, don't worry about it, come and break bread with us and study God's Word, you are welcome! Immediately after dinner we will begin our small group study, finishing up about 8:00 P.M.
See Fr. Ted to obtain a copy of the discussion questions and Biblical references. We hope you will join us!
