Fourth Sunday of Easter

“I am the door; If anyone enters by me he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.” In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. It is so good to still be here with you on this 4th Sunday of Easter. Our struggle, and ordeal with public health, and this virus goes on. We are all still here,

Second Sunday of Easter

It is so good to be here with you all, in these most bizarre times. As Orthodox Christians we have real and profound reason to be hopeful, even in the face of horrific tragedy. We have lost many loved ones, and may lose a good many more. Our faith is not some “pie in the sky when you die by and by”, no it is far more interesting than that.

Maundy Thursday

Tonight we celebrate the events of the Last Supper in the upper room, where Christ gave his disciples instructions to be carried out in his name. The name Maundy came from the Latin word Maundatum, meaning commandment. The commandment we focus on today is the one Christ gave, “do this in remembrance of me.” St. Justin Martyr, who was born in about 100 AD, was one of the first Apologists

Palm Sunday

Today is Palm Sunday, but you will notice in your bulletin it has two names. “The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday” This because there are two distinct parts to our celebration today. The first being a commemoration of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. We read from the Gospel according to St. Matthew about this event. “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find an ass

A Free Gift

“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” From St. Paul’s letter to the Romans. St. Paul’s letter to the Romans is considered one of the greatest books in the Bible. Martin Luther described it as “the chief book in the New Testament and the purest gospel.” John Knox, a modern American professor, says that it is

Be Imitators of God

“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” from St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians. St. Paul’s letter that we heard today begins with this simple guidance for the Christian life. Be imitators of God, as beloved children. I’m sure you have heard the phrase, “Children learn what they

The Woman at the Well

The adult human body contains about 60% water. Water is something we take for granted here. We turn the little handle and the water flows. In many parts of the world, water is a precious resource that is not easy to come by. Water is life. When I was in Malawi, I saw women carrying buckets of water on their heads. Each day they walk to the local well, fill

Temptation in the Wilderness

“After Jesus was baptized, he was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” From the Gospel according to St. Matthew. On Wednesday, we began our annual Lenten season of prayer and fasting in which we participate in the 40 days journey in the wilderness with Jesus. I did not say that we will commemorate this event. Rather, we are called to participate in

Transfiguration Sunday

“Six days after Peter had acknowledged Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God, Jesus took with him Peter and James and his brother John and led them up a high mountain, by themselves.” The Gospel according to St. Matthew was written from the perspective of a Jew, who happened to be a Tax Collector, from Capernaum. Whenever Jesus wanted to teach his disciples, he went up on

The Law of Moses

The Gospel reading this week is about Jesus teaching about the Law of Moses. The Pharisees were very strict about the Law, and they wanted everyone else to follow it, too. But Jesus saw something in the Pharisees that they couldn’t see. The Law that they loved so much had become more about legalism, and less about God’s purpose for his people. The Pharisees put the Law above our Lord
