Yes, Michael this is indeed an on-going process. I am sure you will find it thrilling as you come to know more of James’s teaching, how he gives such a life changing way of looking at our faith, without creating in any way conflict with traditional ways of thought. This is a God who is coming towards us with unconditional love, not a set of rules. As James frequently reminds us, God not only loves us, he also likes us warts and all!
