The Birth of Christ Changes ...
- The Birth of Christ Changes ...
Fr. John Brian uses the readings to give a sermon on how important the
Nativity is and how relevant to our spiritual journey and development.
Hebrew chapter 1 and 1 John chapter 1 both offer insights into the purpose of the Incarnation and birth of Christ.
Fr John Brian talks about St. John's statement in his epistle:
"God is light and all who have life in Him are of the light."
So after the longest night of the year, we are now reassured of the promise of light. In our spirituality, we let the light grow in us even as the day light lengthens.
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, December 25, 2011 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
"Called to Divine Nature" is the theme of an open and free mini-retreat in Madison, January 21, 2012 hosted by Holy Transfiguration Mission. Pre-registration by email or voicemail by January 8 is encouraged.
