Being called an Orthodox Christian is tremendously humbling and at the same time joyful thing, beyond description. We find ourselves experiencing the life of the Church, a life that brings us spiritual growth, comfort,faith, and hope. It is natural that we should desire to see this life grow and flourish in our city, and that we should be determined to be good stewards of what we have received from God.
This section is dedicated to helping our parishioners discover ways to build the parish, spiritually and financially. How does one become a full member of the parish? What is expected of our membership?
Saint George parish is blessed with two priests and two deacons, each of whom is a fine preacher.
Saint James, the Brother of God
October 23, 2016
A very interesting sermon untangling the confusion arising from various translations of the name James, and the different people bearing the name. Father Alban differentiates Saint James the brother, or more correctly, the half-brother of the Jesus Christ (after the flesh) from others with the name. This sermon shows the kind of deep, and detailed traditions that have been carried down in the Orthodox Church that illumine the bare texts of holy scripture.
