2017 Bible Reading Plan

In May our readings turn to the small epistle of James.  This letter has been somewhat controversial in the church and at the same time we recognize that it cites or alludes to the Old Testament more than nearly any other of the short epistles. The teachings on Sunday mornings will be from this epistle and particularly from the verses cited on the Saturday before.  The Lord bless your reading.
