Fifteenth Sunday After Pentecost - Messages for the Community of God: Live Faithfully

On this Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost we continue our series on James' letter to a church struggling to live practically while their faith is being challenged.  These Messages for the Community of God guide us in living practically as well. 

Connect to Live Faithfully . . .    James admonishes us not to show favoritism, but to regard all, especially the poor and marginalized as God regards them - as persons of worth.  Showing favoritism is not only about admonishing those who show favoritism, it is also to acknowledge within us where we show favoritism to ourselves and so side with the rich and powerful over against the marginalized.
