Preparing for Lent and Forgiveness Sunday
February 18, 2018
We cannot journey closer towards God if we are not ready to forgive one another. Lent is a time of reconciling with those from whom we have distanced ourselves.

God's New Name for Us
December 25, 2017

What Is Your Name?
October 22, 2017
“What is your name and who are you?” Let us all admit that our names also may also be “legion,” but with God’s help, we all can discover the special name He gave each of us at our creation. And this holy name is written in the Book of Life, awaiting us to claim it! Read more »

Competition vs Compassion
October 08, 2017
Competition v Compassion. Where do we stand when we see others? From a young age, our society cultivates and instills in us the spirit of competition. I want to do better than others. Why do they have more than me? How can I win! Our American, individualistic spirit pushes us inward toward our ego. Me against the world. The spirit of competition! Read more »

Christ's Call to Unite That Which is Divided
October 01, 2017

The Power of Hate vs The Power of Love
August 13, 2017
It’s unbelievable what happened yesterday in Virginia. White nationalists gathering with neo-Nazis chanting slogans against Jews, blacks, and anyone else different from themselves. This is not Nazi Germany in the 1930s. This is not 1960 in the deep south. This is not 1980 South African apartheid. This is the United States in 2017. Read more »

Radical Christians
July 31, 2017
Today’s heretical Christianity is a comfortable, easy Christianity. Go to church, follow some commandments, wear a cross and have a few icons, maybe even go to Project Mexico once or twice, but DON”T ALLOW CHRIST TO CHANGE OUR LIVES. Too many follow the wide and easy path, which leads to destruction, and ignore the narrow and difficult path which Christ tells us leads into the kingdom of heaven. Radical Christianity is not easy, but it is the Christianity of the saints. Read more »

The Power of Divine Love
September 10, 2023
One of the holy man’s disciples said to his Geronta, “Don’t you know that a scorpion’s nature is to sting? Why do you keep trying to save him? You will get stung!”  The elder reached down to try and help the scorpion one more time. “Yes, that may be true, but don’t you know that my nature as a child of God is to love and to save.  Why should I change my nature simply because the scorpion does not change its nature?” Read more »
