Saint James Presbyterian Church


"Responding to God’s opportunities and welcoming all to join in discipleship."

 

Message from Jon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Henri Nouwen wrote a number of helpful devotions in his classic book, Bread for the Journey. Among them is this contribution, which combines the themes of American materialism, human brokenness, compassion for others, and Christian community. I invite you to reflect on his words and to seek to find a point of contact in your own life.

“Some of us tend to do away with things that are slightly damaged. Instead of repairing them we say, ‘Well, I don’t have the time to fix it, I might as well throw it in the garbage. I can and buy and new one.’ Often we also treat people this way. We say, ‘Well, he has a problem with drinking; well, she is quite depressed; well, they have mismanaged their business… we’d better not take the risk of getting involved with them.’ When we dismiss people out of hand because of their apparent woundedness, we stunt their lives by ignoring their gifts, which are often buried in their wounds.”

“We are all bruised reeds, whether our bruises are visible or not. The compassionate life is the life in which we believe that strength is hidden in weakness and that true community is a fellowship of the weak.” 

                                                                                      Peace,  Jon 

Mission 

Saint James Presbyterian Church is a beacon on the hill where the people respond to the opportunities that God sets before us. We celebrate our rich past as we continue our journey into the future together. We worship the triune God in our beautiful, traditional sanctuary with music, prayer and learning from the word of God. We joyfully welcome youth and young families into our intergenerational and loving community of faith, nurturing relationships that bridge our differences. We are witnesses to God's presence and the grace of Jesus Christ as we address social justice issues locally and internationally through education and action. We are open and affirming, welcoming all to join us in discipleship.
