St. James Book Club
The Book Club via Zoom is open to all.
The next meeting of the St. James book club will be Tuesday, March 2nd at 5:00 pm.
This month's book is Jesus and the Disinherited by Howard Thurman.
What does Jesus offer to people who live with their backs against the wall? This is the question with which Howard Thurman began his landmark work, Jesus and the Disinherited, in 1949. The work became an intellectual pillar for the burgeoning civil rights movement in the 1950s.
Books are available at Yankee Book Shop in Woodstock (locals get a discount), and Amazon in hard cover, paperback or Kindle versions.

Welcome to St. James Episcopal Church. St. James was established on the green in Woodstock, Vermont in 1827 and today is 100% handicap accessible.
St. James is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Vermont, a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion.
The church body of St. James is bound together by the love of God and the love of our neighbors. We are inspired by the founding story of our church.
We are a community of people who come together to worship God in the Episcopal tradition. Through Jesus Christ, and in unity with the Holy Spirit, we seek renewal and growth as we worship God, serve each other and serve our wider community.
Services are held in the church sanctuary on Sunday Mornings: (See exception above during COVID-19)
8:00 AM - Holy Eucharist I
A smaller, more intimate gathering of worshipers with no singing.
10:00 AM - Holy Eucharist II with our Choir.
Any additional services will be announced in our
e-newsletter and here on our website.
Our church offers a traditional setting for your most sacred celebration.
We invite you to join our mailing list and receive emails we send out with news, or special service schedules.
