Celebrating the Right Christmas
After outlining the history of the "two Christmas Days," Fr John Brian talks about how to celebrate the right Christmas in Holy Orthodoxy, using the scripture reading of St Paul's Epistle to the Galatians (3:23-4:7)
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Jesus Christ." 3:28
"When the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son who, born of a woman, became subject to the law, to redeem them who were under the law..." 4:4-5
This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, December 26, 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.
