St. James is pleased to join The Good Book Club, a church-wide program that invites all Episcopalians to read Luke and Acts during Lent-Easter 2018. Participants in The Good Book Club will begin reading Luke the Sunday before Lent, Feb. 11, and finish up the Book of Acts on the Day of Pentecost, May 20.

“We are thrilled to invite thousands and thousands of people to enter the great narrative of Luke and Acts,” said the Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, the project initiator. “As people open their hearts and their minds to scripture, transformation follows. The Good Book Club could change thousands of lives, and, indeed, our whole church.”

St. James joins dozens of organizations already partnering with Forward Movement on The Good Book Club, including Episcopal Church Foundation, ChurchNext, Episcopal Migration Ministries, and the Episcopal Church and Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry. There, and other partner organizations are creating resources and encouraging their constituents to take part in the effort. A full list of current partners, and their related resources, can be found at
