Scripture: James 1:1-2:12
This letter of James is written for us. We are part of the Diaspora of the Followers of the Way. We are scattered farther afield than anyone in James’s time considered possible. And we still struggle to live according to the Way of Jesus. But all around us, voices are speaking up to help us see and understand the effects of inequality and oppression, and these voices are also showing us ways to overcome and end those inequalities and that oppression.
