Sermon ~ Making Sense of it All


“A voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation, weeping, and great mourning.
Rachel weeping for her children, refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”


For my sermon today I addressed the recent School Shooting at the Newtown, Connecticut Elementary School.  I am posting the audio of the sermon only as I went off text at the very start.

Sermon ~ Making Sense of it All


  1. This is what I appreciate about Orthodoxy. It’s real. There’s nothing superficially super-charged about it. We do not toy with people’s emotions simply to get a reaction. We base our lives on the rational teachings of Jesus Christ, as taught by our Church and over 2,000 years of Church tradition. There is no fluff. It is what it is. When we grieve, it’s because Jesus Christ taught us to feel compassion for others. “There is a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.” (Ecclesiasties) Then there is time to learn how to deal with life and all of it’s heartache. By the grace of God, we work through our temporary home with hope, by Grace, one minute, one hour and one day at a time. Thank you, Father, for helping us to make sense of this world and the world to come.
