  • Scripture Comes Alive:  A.D The Bible Continues

 

The ACTS of The Apostles comes to life. We see the struggles of those who were witnesses 2000 years ago.   We have a new time 12noon – 1pm.  Since we are meeting earlier we will be serving lunch, chat about what we learned last Sunday and watch the next episode and see the humble beginnings of a revolution of LOVE.

This past Sunday we witnessed the Passion of Our Lord, saw the interworking of the times.  Clothes and customs may have changed…but people struggling with a change due to the teachings of Jesus and HIS followers have not.  We also connect the dots to our beloved Divine Liturgy.  Everything in our Orthodox faith has meaning…from the grand…down to the smallest details.

Every Sunday: North Chapel on 2nd floor of the Sanctuary.

 

7/3 Episode Two – The Body is Gone. The disciples are overjoyed. Jesus returns strengthen them and give them resolve to follow HIM and HIS message.

 

7/10 Episode Three – The Spirit Arrives. Caiaphas and Pilate struggle to contain the news of the resurrection. The arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost galvanizes the fledgling church.

 

All are welcome to join us on this journey and rekindle the fire within us, given to us at our baptism. I look forward to seeing you…please bring a friend.  If you have your own Bible,

bring it to church…if not…we will use the ones in the pews…they may need a good dusting.

 

In HIS service
