"But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith." St. Paul in I Corinthians 15
In the opening chapters of the Book of Samuel, we read:
"The word of the Lord was rare and precious in those days; there was no frequent or widely spread vision."
In short, God was silent. He did not have much to say, but when he did, it was precious.
At St. James the Less our mission is to be an Episcopal presence in the community, pursuing the understanding of God’s grace while seeking the reconciliation of all people to each other and to unity with God.
