Reflections

Where pop music and theology meet

Reflections is a new, weekly, Saint James offering that will share and overlap with the Saturday Night vibe through which we combine the theology we need with the pop music we love.

Give us 20 minutes—at any time in your week—and we will refresh you with top-artist tunes that connect with a scripture reading of the week and an invitation to reflect on how your God-given gifts are to be used in the world today. Using a couple of internet listening options, a scripture passage, and short teachings and conversational voices we hope to weave you and God into a tightly woven tapestry full of textures and vibrant colors. Enjoy!

Please email Andy Woolworth with your comments, questions and suggestions.
