Biography of J. James Albert

Raised in the legalistic one cup, no classes segment of the a cappella Churches of Christ in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s, as a result of studying with an uncle and several others, I began to challenge and question the exclusiveness, and some of the related practices, of my brethren in Christ. Although to this day I still regularly assemble with brethren of these same opinions relative to cups and classes and instrumental music, I realize that the fellowship of God’s Dear Son is much broader than the members of this sect. Also, over time I came to realize that we are saved by grace and not by our knowledge, righteousness, and rightness relative to “disputable matters”.

For several years I expressed my views in a little publication called “Restoration Reporter”. Then after moving to California, in September, 1981, I began to send out the “California Letter”. My intent was to communicate and share, hopefully stimulating thinking, especially relative to fellowship and unity and other pertinent subjects, so as to advance the cause of Christ. I had not planned to send a “Letter” every month, but have done so for almost 29 years now with the help of my wife Elma.

For 35 years I worked in various capacities in the public school system. In 1999 I retired and am busier than ever — six grandkids, preaching and teaching regularly, writing, and teaching a class or two in Psychology each semester for the College Of The Sequoias.

    Hello Brother Albert,

    I just recently found and have now subscribed to your California Newsletter. It looks like something I will enjoy reading.

    I preach for a very small “mainstream” Church of Christ in Orland, CA, near Chico. I would look foreward to visiting with you over the phone, sometime, if that would ever work for you.

    All the best, in Christ!
