I LOVE this reminder: fishers with a net and not hunters with bullets. Loving rather than judging. Serving rather than condemning. Welcoming rather than burdening. "Come, follow Me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." Matthew 4:19 Have a great day and God bless!

How many of us are guided by fear?
Allow me to be the first to admit how risk averse I am.
Fear can be a paralyzing agent. The fear we create in our imagination is the most convincing one of all.
I could spend days listing the subcategories in each of the fundamental blessings I already mentioned. And many more days listing items in each of the subcategories.
But this year, I would like to focus on one specific blessing.
One that I always take for granted. One that shook my heart as I listened to my favorite hymn at church yesterday.
Moment of truth: Sunday School is not always ‘fun’. At least not by the kids’ standards of what constitutes fun. There are no video-games, super heroes or animation. They are required to sit down and to listen to “a lesson”, either a story or a spiritual concept or to learn about the history of the Church ( through discussions about the Feasts, Fasts and Sacraments).
By the Grace of God, Philo and the SuperHolies is now available at St. Nicholas Orthodox Bookstore!!!

It was hard to carry on the negotiations as I was also battling voices in my head: “let him have it, it is just $2” , “it is the principal, would I buy it if it cost more?”, “why deny him a small treat?” “no, if you give in now, you will always give in”, “what harm will it do, it will make him so happy”, ” he should understand that he will not always get what he wants in life”, ” he is only a child once”.
«Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today to bid farewell to our dearly departed dishwasher. She stopped functioning peacefully after a long and happy life full of hot water, suds and memories of delicious meals. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you help with the dishes.»
How do you explain the need for Baptism to 3rd graders? I struggled with this question as I was preparing my Sunday School lesson.
As a child, there was a hymn that I really loved. It had an uplifting tune to it and a powerful message. It was called ‘Telephone el Sama’ ( Heaven’s telephone). The lyrics are simple: the phone to heaven is always connected, your heavenly Father always answers it.
