God Made Us All Children
On the fourth Sunday of Annunciations in the preparation for Holy Nativity, at the birth of John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit now speaks through the once silent tongue of Zechariah, the priest and father of John the Baptist. This is also designated Children's Day.
Fr John Brian's sermon focuses on the prophecy of Zechariah, honoring his son, and the reality of growing up - in this world and in spirit, using the scriptures, especially Luke 1:57-80 and 1 John 3:1-3.
This sermon lesson uses the readings and services appointed from the Malankara Syrian lectionary and was given on Sunday, December 5, 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.
