No Pannykhida Tonight 
19/5/15, 04:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
Unfortunately Fr. Gregory has picked up a stomach virus and will be unable to come to church tonight. What that means is:

1. There will be no Pannykhida tonight at 5:00 p.m.

2. There WILL be a Reader's service tonight at 6:00 p.m.

For now Liturgy is still scheduled for tomorrow. A message will be posted here and sent to the St. Vladimir's email list by 7:00 a.m. if Liturgy is canceled. If there is no message then Liturgy will take place as scheduled.

We ask your forgiveness for this inconvenience and this late notice.

Adult Group Meets May 22 – You have Homework! 
18/5/15, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
The founding of the “Strengthening of Orthodox Marriage League”. Or perhaps we will call it something else. In any case, this is a meeting you won't want to miss. You will want to tell your children “I did everything I could to strengthen marriage and I was there when this group was founded.” Marriage is struggling in the world and in our society. Why? This is a thought-provoking article in this regard and this is our homework for the Adult Discussion Group that will meet at Fr. Gregory's home in Saline at 7:00 p.m. on May 22:

http://blogs.ancientfaith.com/glory2god ... suffering/

This is not to say that we are being told to agree with everything in this article. But it is though-provoking, and that is a good thing to prepare for a discussion group!

Let's work on the answers to this issue together! How do we strengthen our own marriage? How do we help others without being intrusive? What do we do?! Do we found a group that supports us in this regard? We don't have every answer – but with God's help and our sincere effort we must – as Christians – believe that there is hope. Join us! Help us to strengthen marriage in our parish now and in the future!

An Important Article – Traditional Orthodox Theology as the True Philosophy 
18/5/15, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
This is an excellent article. Not too long, not too short, but filled with important information for us as Orthodox Christians living in the contemporary world:

“Orthodox theology stresses man’s regeneration and transformation in Christ through seeing and participating in God within the body of the Church by means of watchfulness, ascesis, prayer, sacramental life, purification, illumination and sanctification.”

“...pure life and a clear mind are preconditions for Theology and pure theoria...”

Those quotes should sound very familiar and very right to us. But there are those that seem to want to throw out the Fathers of the Church as “dated” and “old fashioned”. Read this article to find out why a jettisoning of the Father of the Church is not at all a good idea and that doing so would have real, dilatory effects on our spiritual lives.
