Reflections and Sermons
But in these last days He has spoken to us by a Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom He also created the world. Hebrews 1:2
So when I fall or fail, I commit to trying again and again to get up and move forward. To try better to redirect others to God as Christ has shown us in the Gospel accounts. And I resolve and commit again to try and show everyone God’s mercy even when others are anxious or frightened. These are some of my reflections and resolutions for the New Year. Christ is born glorify Him!
It is not unreasonable to be caught up in all of the news and craze and fear and chaos of today. Everywhere we turn and look there are distractions, pleasures, paths and patterns of avoidance. We are constantly bombarded and exposed to a pace of life that does not leave much room or time for a moment of peace.
The question crosses our minds often, sometimes in the singular form, of why am I this way?
Isn’t it true that words carry with them immense poser? Power to build up and power to tear down.
Well, on May 29th the Commonwealth went back pretty much to those pre-pandemic days! If you’re like me, you too can remember those days and it seems like I’m awakening from a very bad dream. I might suggest that we all pause for a moment and reflect on what we have been through.
Christ is Risen! The Pascal season is coming to a close in the days and weeks to come, with the great feasts of Ascension and Pentecost. We see life renewed, the weather warm, and the months of relative relaxation calling. The struggle against the bitter cold, and dreadful isolation is far behind us, the warmth of the Sun of Righteousness is meant to be enjoyed by all of us.
The authentic Christian experience consists of preparing ourselves for communion and community.
The parish family of St Vasilios cordially invites you to participate in the greatest celebration of all....Pascha (Easter). Everyone is invited! Those who struggled through Great and Holy Lent to gain spiritual food and maturity and those who only came to church one or twice this year.
We live in a country, and in a place in history where we pride ourselves for being individuals, in being self-reliant, and capable of taking care of ourselves.
