Bring No More Vain Offerings (Isaiah Chapter 1)
In Isaiah Chapter 1 is a clarifying teaching of True worship and devotion to God. In light and memory of the tenth anniversry of September 11th and the day of New Year's in the Ethiopian calendar, the teaching is rather poignant. Fr John Brian discusses this prophecy with the filter of the Gospel reading from Matthew Chapter 5.
Fr John Brian uses these to talk about the difference between a real sacrifice offering and a vain offering.
Which do you give the Lord?
