Extended Open Worship (James 5:13-16)

James 5:13-16 (NRSV): 

13 Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. 14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.


How are you suffering? We want to prayerfully hold you in the Light.

What is making you cheerful? We want to joyfully participate in your Light.

From what “sins” do you wish to be set free? We want to—with grace and without condemnation—hold you to the Light.
