Christmas celebrates the moment in history when God acted in a particular and unique fashion. He decided to show His love by coming on earth as a human being, and revealing to the world what true humanity is all about. He incarnated divine agape love so that the world could better understand what true love means. And not only did he show the world what true humanity is, He offered His Spirit to live and dwell within us to help us. Christ came to renew that likeness of God within us which we had lost long ago!

The secular Christmas Spirit and the religious Christmas Spirit. Two different ways of approaching Christmas, and yet maybe both have something to help us prepare for this great feast of the Church.

Fr Luke asked me to speak about “What God and the Church mean to me and why I give back to the Church.” We know WHY we are here – we come to encounter God, to pray, to ask forgiveness, to seek spiritual guidance and inspiration, and for so many other things. But do we know WHAT we are supposed to do as followers of Jesus Christ?

The Church
The life of the Orthodox Church perpetuates and fulfills the ministry of Jesus Christ. The close association between Christ and His Church is reflected in the images from the Scriptures which declare that Christ is the Head and the Church is His Body, and that Christ is the Bridegroom and the Church is His bride.
