Bad Bosses and Burning Books
As the Holy Church anticipates in the festival of the Holy Cross, the lessons for this Sunday deal with avoiding participation with evil by changing "an eye for an eye" to "turn the other cheek." Fr John Brian brings the Gospel (Matthew 5:38-48) into focus by talking about "Bad Bosses" and "Burning Books" and the basics of living the Christian life and doing good in this world.
The other readings for the day are mentioned: 1 Peter 2:1-5; 1 Corinthians 3:16-23
This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, Spetember 12, 2010 by Fr. John Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.
"We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency may be of the power of God and not of us." 2 Corinthians 4:7.
