Pt. 11 - Faith That Prays and Pursues

11_Veritas_Faith_prays and pursues.png

The letter of James concludes with a fitting focus on what genuine faith does: genuine faith prays and pursues. James, concise to a fault, leaves his readers with an exhortation that as followers of Jesus we are to move towards those who are in need. We pursue others in faith that God wants to heal and restore as we make our needs known to him in prayer.

Pt. 7 - Faith Marked by True Wisdom

7_Veritas_Faith_marked by wisdom.png

When the entire world seems to say that self-interest, getting ahead, and carnivorous ambition is what wisdom is all about, James comes with a radically different picture of wisdom. Echoing the call of wisdom from the book of Proverbs, James boldy claims that true wisdom is radically other focused. True wisdom cannot be found by looking inward, but only by looking upward to Jesus, the embodiment of true wisdom.

Ruth Graphic.png

For Advent this year we'll be studying the Book of Ruth together. Ruth is an incredible love story where to very unlikely people end up together. Ruth is a non-Jewish woman who shows faithfulness and loyalty to her mother-in-law, Naomi, and Boaz is a wealthy family member who shows incredible mercy and loyalty to Ruth. Ultimately, we’ll see whispers of the gospel of Jesus Christ in a book written some 1,000 years before Jesus’ birth.
