California Letter Blog

J. James Albert is a progressive among the one-cup Churches of Christ. He has distributed the “California Letter” by email for many years, and he has had a powerful impact within not only the one-cup congregations but also the rest of the Churches of Christ.

One Cup Man introduced me to his work, which I found very impressive, but I was disappointed to learn that he has no web presence. I’m glad to report, however, that Br. Albert kindly accepted my offer to set up a blog for him, which you’ll find at California Letter. (How do you like my work as a web designer?)

Leroy Garrett wrote in The Stone-Campbell Movement, p. 444,

J. James Albert is another voice among the One-Cup group who insists that only love can heal the wounds of party strife. … [H]e has consistently said things like: “Brethren are fearful of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and are equally fearful of an intimate relationship with their brethren in Christ that is based on love.” While he stays within his party, he refuses to be a party man.

    One Cup Man

    Many years ago I worshiped with a congregation in Kansas city. They were delightfull people. I have been a member of many very fundamental groups, non class and non located preachers. All were very loving Christian people . Most did not consider me as an outsidier. We were accepted very graciously. I even did some preaching for them. I pray that all groups today have the same attitude to those who differ in worship practices. We are all headed for the same place.

    It is too bad that all groups can't fellowship each other and work toward sharing the Gospel with the lost. As I recal your one cup folks were very good at evangelism.

    Thank you for your comments several times with me.

    Love you one cup man. We will talk for a couple of million years in heaven. Will seem like no time at all.
