    Thank You for this post!

    I appreciate how you discuss in the sermon how the Law was not for our perfection, how it gave us reason to blame each other for not being able to obey the Law... and how God coming to rectify the problem. I have an issue with the ministry of our church placing too much emphasis on the Law and not of the Grace of God.

    It is comforting to hear you speak about our individuality in the commonality of Christ.

    Thank you, may God bless your ministry and increase the Holy Orthodox Church!
