About the workshop:

In this Bible study workshop, we will come from different contexts and speak two languages, Spanish and English. With our different experiences, it is normal that we see different things in the scriptures. Nevertheless, with communication guided by the Spirit, we hope to help one another see more in the scriptures. We will explore how the teachings of James remain relevant for our communities today. In this way, we intend to deepen our understanding and practice of Christian faith, embody the just peace of God, and help our neighbors and neighborhoods flourish.

Goals of the Workshop

Participants in the workshop will be able to:

·      Describe the context in which the letter of James was written, and draw analogies with our current contexts.
·      Interpret passages from the letter of James, using a method in which people from different contexts share their insights with one another.

·      Envision how we can love our neighbors according to the teachings of James.
