James answers the question of what faith looks like when we take it off the shelf and put it to use in the everyday messiness of life. He considers practical issues like living in tough times, caring for the poor, controlling our tongues and developing patience. James hold particular relevance in the world today as we are challenged to live out our faith in uncertain times.

If you have felt tossed about from one news story to the next, this series will help you reclaim strength and stability as we examine how God has a history of working in turbulent times.

For 16 years, I’ve been working to love and understand the people in my church and my city […]

In John 20:19, we find the disciples behind locked doors afraid to go out for fear of the city leaders. On that first Easter Sunday, Jesus was among them and they had a life-changing encounter with the risen Savior. Our hope is that as you experience Easter on […]
