December 2016 LUBA Guidelines - 11/18/16

The word attentive has many meanings; observant, aware, vigilant, kind, conscientious, thoughtful and the list goes on. All of these adjectives describe the life of an Orthodox Christian - how we are called to live our daily life. It is no coincidence that during the Divine Liturgy we are called to "Be Attentive". In a way, being attentive is sacramental - being vigilant to Christ and His sacraments. But we are not only called to be attentive in our divine services, we are called to be attentive in our lives and to our brothers and sister in Christ. Be considerate. Be caring. Be understanding. Be sympathetic.

Stewardship and the Great Council - A Reflection by Very Rev. Fr. Robert Holet - 07/15/16

The timing couldn’t be better – as the Great and Holy Council of the Orthodox Church convened in Crete with the celebration of the Feast of Pentecost, concluding on the Sunday of All Saints. Much will be written by many with far more profound insights into the historical, spiritual and theological meaning of the Council – as well as the implications of the participation of the Churches and, more notably, the non-participation of others, for whatever reasons. From my perspective, what is so encouraging is the refreshing sight of the Fathers of the Church as they step up – prayerfully, visibly and publically – to act as the stewards of the Lord’s Church in our age. Quietly, the prayer of many Orthodox Christians was that, through the Council, the Lord would pour forth a wave of spiritual enthusiasm, renewed insight and where necessary, needed change, to the Orthodox Church’s life and witness in the world today.
