On February 14, Pastor Marc Hershberger began a sermon series on the book of James. Although two of Jesus' 12 disciples were named James, this book was not written by either of them, but by the half-brother of Jesus! James was one who was slow to believe but came to be one of the most reputable and influential leaders in the early church.
A principle theme of the book of James is faith. Faith is not to be understood as a static, spiritual state of mind or a religious transaction between us and God, but as a dynamic, living expression of our relationship with God. Christian faith lives and breathes.
Pastor Marc's daughter Mia created this drawing to portray some of the key themes of the book of James.
