Human and Divine Christianity
How is it that we can be partakers of Divine Nature when we are immersed in human nature?
Fr John Brian uses the scriptures appointed, especially the first chapter of Second Peter, to talk about our human and spiritual lives, and how we can be "partakers of divine nature" as St Peter tells us in his epistle.
This is the theme of an open and free mini-retreat in Madison, Wisconsin - January 21, 2012 - "Called to Divine Nature" hosted by Holy Transfiguration Mission. (Pre-registration email or voicemail by January 8 is encouraged.)
This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara Orthodox calendar and was given on Sunday, November 13, 2011 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.
