St. John

Message from Bishop Reed

We now have cases of COVID-19 among our congregations. At Camp Crucis, staff exposure to the virus forced a tough decision this week to cancel all Summer Camp sessions for 2020. Around Texas, the number of cases and hospitalized patients has been climbing statewide for several weeks, and the Governor says next week will be worse; his executive order requires face coverings to be worn in public anywhere in the

4th Sunday After Pentecost

“The haughtiness of man shall be humbled, and the pride of men shall be brought low!” In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. We normally like to talk about the new life that our Christianity brings us, which is good and true. As has recently crashed into our reality we have been painfully made aware of the presence of death. We always

3rd Sunday After Pentecost

There will be those people who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and there will be those people to whom God says, “Thy will be done.” In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Just as one man’s trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man’s act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men. Here in this

2nd Sunday After Pentecost

“While we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6 In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. I am grateful I live in Burkburnett. I like small town living much better than living in Grapevine, in the middle of a huge number of people. People seem to get along fine here. Of course some of

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

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

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
