  • Whole and Holy: A Study in James - A Ship Tossed in the Waves

    14/04/2024 Duración: 34min

    On Sunday Amanda continued to lead us into our new series "Whole and Holy: A Study in James." What happens when one person lives out their faith? When a person lines up their actions with their faith, they become more whole as a person, and more holy as a temple of God. How does that affect their community? This integral faith affects the wholeness and holiness of our community. Journey with us in a season of preparation and anticipation: to make sure our own “house” [as in body] and our own “house” [as in “church community”] is in order. Over the next few months, we are going to take a good look in the mirror and let the Good News shape our every day lives.  To visit our Teaching Notes: https://stclair.substack.com/
