We’re glad you’re here.
Inspired by St. James, the brother of Jesus, who encourages us to “be ye doers of the word and not hearers only,” St. James’s Episcopal Church in Richmond is driven by a mission to serve the world and love our neighbor. Inclusive, inviting, inspiring, St. James’s helps you discover the rewards of serving and the soaring power of community at a church that’s steeped in tradition but shaped by today.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.
True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.
You can kill the dreamer, but you can’t kill the dream.
The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.
–Martin Luther King Jr.
