James: Winning At Life

The Book of James is unique to all of Scripture. The way in which James encourages us to persevere, to see all circumstances as trials and opportunities, and to manifest our faith in action sets forward a powerful recipe for what it means to win at life. James challenges our conceptions of success, of faith, and the daily choices presented to us. We invite you to join us as we explore what The Book of James has to say about overcoming obstacles, making wise decisions, and thriving during our brief time on this Earth.
