The book of James is a definite eye opener when it comes to understanding the Christian life. Statements like, "faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead" have a way of smacking you right in the face, and the book is full of them. There is one, however, that I haven't been able to get out of my mind - verse 1:27. Please take some time to watch or listen to the video as I read the verse and begin to ask some questions about its meaning. My prayer as that we will all put our faith into action in our own unique way, and our communities will flourish as a result.
