Continuing in Resurrection Grace

Continuing in Resurrection Grace

Christ is risen from the dead and on those in the tombs giving life!

Maintaining the grace of the Resurrection can be difficult. The symbol of the butterfly has been a symbol of the resurrection for centuries and gives insight into how we can keep more of the Resurrection grace.

In this homiletic sermon, Fr John Brian walks through the end of Ephesians Chapter 4. He equates the "new man" - that St Paul's tells us to "put on" - with the superhoero each of us has within us.

This is an inspirational sermon by Fr. John Brian on Orthodox Christian spirituality completely within the New Testament teaching of St. Paul.

Fr John Brian lays the groundwork for us to share the Good News of the light and life and deep abiding love presented to us at the Resurrection and bourn upon the Word from the beginning.

This sermon uses and refers to scripture readings appointed by the Syrian Malankara calendar and was given on Sunday, April 29, 2012 by Fr. John-Brian Paprock at Holy Transfiguration Orthodox Mission Chapel, Madison, Wisconsin.

Please, as you are inspired to pray for us and help us, let us know your prayer needs during this auspicious time. Thank you for your prayers, especially for Fr John Brian. This is an important time for our mission parish - please continue your prayers and good intentions for us.
