Scripture Reading for the Coming Week 
25/7/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Romans 16:17-24 & Matthew 13:10-23
Tuesday: I Corinthians 1:1-9 & Matthew 13:24-30
Wednesday: I Corinthians 2:9-3:8 & Matthew 13:31-36
Thursday: I Corinthians 3:18-23 & Matthew 13:36-43
Friday: I Corinthians 4:5-8 & Matthew 13:44-54
Saturday: Romans 9:1-5 & Matthew 9:18-26

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

Racism in the Church & Care for the Garden 
24/7/21, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory


The Church exists in the world by design. The Lord founded His Church to provide a haven for those who live in the world but who seek the Kingdom of God. But, because the Church exists in the world, ideas foreign to her from time to time seep in. It is our job as Orthodox Christians to maintain the purity of the faith and, as St. Paul says, to test the spirits. Put another way, we all need to have our personal spiritual filter, built and strengthened by our ongoing struggle to be transformed into the children of God. But as a Church we need to have such a filter too, and the faithful have the responsibility to sound the alarm when something sneaks through the filter...

Bishop Visit Preparation: Pious Behavior in Church + 3 Lampadas 
23/7/21, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory

Of course we should behave appropriately in church and we believe that everyone WANTS to behave appropriately, but sometimes we dont know or we forget about the special times in the Divine Service when we should not move about, or other important aspects of our worship. We include below a little pamphlet which reminds us of these things, and which also outlines the schema of the lights above the royal doors at St. Vladimirs (when the outside lamps are lit we should not move about unless it is a matter of life and death). Please review this pamphlet and please see Fr. Gregory with questions. We appreciate sincerely your efforts to behave appropriately in the parish church during the Divine Services!

THREE LAMPADAS ABOVE ROYAL DOORS
