Communities of Hope,
According to the BBC News, by the year 2016, 1% of the world’s population will control 50% of the world’s wealth. In the West we are closer to the 1% than the 99% and yet many of us struggle to navigate of our perceived material abundance or lack thereof. We tend to look at our material possessions in two ways: If I have abundance, my position is exalted and if I am lacking, my position is one of humiliation. This Sunday we are continuing our series through the book of James called “Into Life” as we look at James 1.9-11 to gain a vision of how we are to navigate life in the midst of abundance or lacking of material possessions.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
Grace + Peace,
