In Tolkein’s “The Lord of the Rings”,  a band of friends sets out together, and encourage each other towards virtue and courage.  In the same way, real Christianity could be called “The Fellowship of the King“, because we too are called to encourage each other towards virtue and courage – for we have been adopted into the the household of the one true King.  And we have been sent out to be about His business.

The book of James  was written for those willing to take such a journey.  It is one of the most practical and challenging books of the New Testament.   This Fall, join us at Leverington Church in the Roxborough area of the city for an immersive eight week adventure.  Each Sunday from October 8th through November 26, Langdon Palmer will give a talk on a section of James.  Then that week, we will discuss the scriptures together in small groups throughout the area.  We will find that James calls upon us to Seize the Day – to live it with fierce joy for God.  Podcasts will be available, and each Sunday will be a stand-alone experience, so join us when you can!
