KLGA THE (B)RIGHT SPOT 16 fit (OF COURSE) STRONG CHURCHES•*J Make Strong Communities "For as the body away from the spirit is dead, so faith apart from works is dead." •—James 2:26 Christianity means much more than going to church once or twice a week. Taking the body to church is a small physical effort; it is more difficult to achieve a presence of mind, heart and soul. It is not enough to say we have faith, and to believe it. We must show faith, in the daily conduct of our lives, in our constant approach to problems and situations. In the performance of good works, faith is strong and most clearly evident.
