If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? — James 2:16


“Abraham’s faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did…You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone.” — James 2:22, 24

“The rezoning debate cast a harsh light on the differences between the two schools, which are only nine blocks apart. While P.S. 199 is mostly white, with high test scores and a parent-teacher association that raises $800,000 a year, P.S. 191 is mostly black and Hispanic, with low test scores, and many students that come from an adjacent public housing project...Though the current principal at P.S. 191 has made significant improvements, and it is no longer on the list of dangerous schools, some parents living in the blocks to be rezoned said they would not send their children there. Some said they would simply move.”
— The New York Times
