Christ Is In Our Midst: Sunday Sermons
Sunday of Forgiveness - February 22, 2015
We are just about to begin the season of Great Lent. It is, of course, a time of fasting, and of preparing for Pascha. It is a kind of a journey. In fact, it is a period of exile. At the same time, it is an adventure. We may feel that it is unkind or hard on us; it pushes us in ways we don’t want to be pushed. And at the same time, it is itself a gift to us, and it leads us to priceless treasure. It leads us to the Cross and death. And then it reveals the Resurrection.
The Sunday of the Last Judgment - February 15, 2015
Both the Epistle and the Gospel for this Sunday of the Last Judgment point out the difference between a selfish attitude and a selfless one. We are called, of course, to be selfless. And here’s the amazing thing: the more we give ourselves away in love, the more we receive ourselves back as something even better. This is because God made us for love. When we love, we are are discovering who we are; we are becoming who we are. We are doing what we were created to do.
The Meeting of the Lord - February 2, 2015
Today is the feast of the Meeting of the Lord. Sometimes it’s referred to as the “Presentation of the Lord in the Temple.” In Greek, though, the name “Ypapandi” means “meeting” or “encounter.” And indeed, this is a feast that celebrates an encounter with God. Not only is this the feast of the encounter of righteous Simeon and St. Anna the prophetess with the Lord in the Temple in Jerusalem; it is also a feast of our encounter with the living God.
