We will approach these topics from the Orthodox perspective, but this doesn’t mean we will always come to perfect conclusions on every topic. Rather we will listen and learn from others and try to have an open mind about some things. The format will be to read a short something together followed by a discussion.

Pictured is the procession to the cemetery. Protodeacon Patrick Lamb, her son, is carrying the censer.May Christ, our true God, the immortal King, Who has dominion over the living and the dead, and Who rose from the dead, trampling down death by death and upon those in the tombs bestowing life... establish the soul of His servant, Eloise, departed this life, in the dwelling-place of the righteous...

Sunday's Homily Excerpt -

The funeral is the beginning of a new relationship with someone who has died, something that, in one form or another, will continue until the end of the world. Though we grieve for our loss, we are joyfully confident that Christ has... 'Trampled down death by His death....' The joy that is a hallmark of the Paschal celebrations is always in mind as we offer our prayers for those who have departed this life. - Protodeacon Pat Lamb, May 16, 2024-

"One Accord"

Excerpts from Christian writers Past and Present

Believers participate in this week according to their spiritual ability and life circumstances. Yet, the most crucial question remains: How do I allow these salvific events to shape my life as a believer? The prayers, hymns and Scriptures of this week call us to reflect deeply on our own lives and actions. And so, we see in ourselves the fig tree that must always bear fruit, the sinner who repents fervently, Judas who falls into betrayal and despair of God's mercy, Peter who denies out of fear but repents with bitter tears, the woman who washes the Lord's feet, and the disciple who is presented the body and blood of his Lord as food and drink to be united with him spiritually, in order to become the beloved for whom Christ dies to give him the power of life that triumphs over death.” -- Metropolitan Saba, Antiochian Archdiocese
