James is one of the most practical books of the Bible. Like the book of Proverbs, it is a book of wisdom, a collection of teachings on issues faced by ordinary Christians in everyday life. These teachings speak loudly to all those who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and their faith. This study offers “pearls for wise living” by applying the wisdom of James to the present day. For anyone who has struggled to live a truly Christian life, James offers a wealth of practical solutions for handling and even sanctifying everyday circumstances.
Find an anchor to hold you steady through the storms of life.
Learn how just a few small words can change your entire life for better or for worse.

The study of James will be offered on Tuesday mornings, beginning January 9, 2018, from 9:45-11:15am in Room 101. This study will be a LIVE STUDY, which is a longer study each week where participants will view the course video together, engage in group conversation and have time for questions & answers with a catechist/leader.
