Father’s Message – November

Dear Parishioners, 

     Christmas is approaching and Christians all the world will be preparing themselves for the celebration of the «great and paradoxical mystery», which is the incarnation of the Only-begotten Son of God for our salvation and for the reconciliation of man with his Creator. Christmas remains a mystery for those who live outside the Church and beyond the Christian Faith. For this reason, in the service on the Sunday before the Feast of Christmas the Church reads the Epistle to the Hebrews, written by the great missionary and Apostle, St. Paul. In both the chapter and throughout the Epistle, he reminds the Jewish people about their forefathers; More particularly about Abraham and all the Patriarchs, who by faith and in obedience to God, had accomplished great miracles and victories over those who were against them. Having faith in the promises and the authority of God, they lived like strangers in this world, because they believed that God would never fail in his words and his promise. Abraham and all his descendants in faith «For he looked forward to the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God» 

[Hebrews 11:10].

Stewardship

Mark Twain once said, “It’s not the passages in the Bible I don’t understand that bother me so much, it’s the ones that I do understand. Most of us have been presented with the Christian concert of giving known as Stewardship. We probably know the following facts about it:
That God wants us to give proportionately of our income to the Church.
God wants us to give cheerfully.
God does not want us to draw attention to ourselves through our giving.
God wants us to lay aside daily a sum of money to give to the Church.
Stewardship is a giving of our time, talents and finances to God.

ούχ υμών έστι χρόνους ή καιρούς ούς ο πατήρ έθετο εν τη ιδία
εξουσία, αλλά λήψεσθε δύναμιν, επελθόντος του Αγίου Πνεύματος
εφ’ υμάς» (Πράξεις Α΄ 7)
