News and Readings:


The heart of Jesus is not merely a heart which sympathizes with us from without, but from within, so that our heart may find itself cheered in the knowledge of his fellowship; our own heart, our own longings passed away, because our own self is lost in the Body of Christ.

-Richard Meux Benson, SSJE (1824-1915) 
Society of Saint John the Evangelist

Good News 2020

Organizations, communities and even families constantly evolve over time, requiring periodic “check-in” and planning. A good road map assures the journey/change is productive and getting everyone closer to destinations or aspirations. Last summer, the Vestry appointed the Mission & Vision Steering Committee to be responsible for overseeing implementation of St. James’ strategic plan which has been named Good News 2020.
