Understanding our Changing World

Raising awareness

Part of our mission as Christians is to stay informed, understand our world and raise awareness with others so that we may serve more effectively. We continue to explore how we as a community can learn about other faiths, combat racism in ourselves and engage in conversations with people whose belief systems are very different from ours. To that end, we collaborate with other like-minded organizations to present seminars, book studies, lectures and experiences that will help create a community of reconcilers, justice-makers and healers.

Bridge Dinner

November 3, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30 PM in the Parish House Forum Room, $32/person

Saint James is hosting a cross-cultural culinary experience in which participants share a meal prepared by former refugees and/or our neighbors from around the world who have recently settled in the United States.

BRIDGE operates as an internet platform where families, businesses, and neighbors can book cultural experiences with refugee families. Every experience connects people to the culture, cuisine, and stories of refugees. Learn more about BRIDGE here.
