Well that was what Martin Luther thought of James. But I think this week I'm going to go with the reading from it (James 1: 17-27) as my main text.
I love the 'every generous act of giving, every perfect gift is from above' start. The idea of living as creatures of grace: yet James doesn't let us get away with sitting back and letting God do all the work 'be doers of the word, not simply hearers of it'.
As I feel poised between holiday & another 'academic year' James feels just right to me...
