    { We're Glad You've Visited }

    We welcome you and invite you to enter into a deeper exploration of a community that shares the love of Jesus Christ with each other, our city, and the world. It takes more than a few words to describe a parish, but there are two things we can tell you right away: we are committed to Jesus Christ and from that commitment flows our care for one another and our ministries. In every ministry and program, we at St. James' Church on Madison Avenue at 71st Street invite you to enter more deeply into the life we share in Christ. We hope you will join us.

    The Rev. Brenda G. Husson, Rector

Many Cultures, One God

Wednesday reflections on sights and culture by Janet Pyne


Wednesday was a day of traveling to many countries, cultures and centuries.  We started out in Nazareth and drove north to the origins of the Jordan River where we could see Lebanon just a few miles away.  The first stop was to the first century Roman ruins of Caesarea Philipi where we encountered Chinese Christian pilgrims who were purifying the site of shrines to Pan and Zeus carved into the mountain side, for Christ.  Lunch was prepared for us by a welcoming Syrian Druze restaurant near the border of Syria in the Golan Heights.  Near the snow line around Mt. Hermon, apple and cherry orchards surround their town of Mas’ada.  We then headed back south to central Galilee to Sepphoris, the Roman capital that Jesus would have known, which is now an archeological dig with Byzantine and Roman ruins.   After dinner at the Sisters of Nazareth, our indefatigable guide, Iyad, took us under the monastery to the excavations of a Byzantine church and first century home and burial sights from the time that Jesus lived in Nazareth.  What an experience!
