Sunday's Homily Excerpt -May 15, 2022

In our Orthodox Christian life there is no room for fake. Hurts are hurts, and injustices are injustices. There is no fake, but there is faith. When we sing Christ is 'among those in the tombs bestowing life,' we believe the power of His life-giving resurrection is among those who have died and that this power will some day burst forth bringing them back to life.- Fr. Marc Dunaway

"One Accord"

Excerpts from Christian writers Past and Present

In order to fulfill the commandments of Christ, you must know them. They are expounded in the Gospels. Read the Holy Gospels, penetrate its spirit, make it the rule of your life, act in accord with the teachings of the Gospels. This is the one light in our life. – St. Nikon of Optina
