A Reflection On Appalachian Service Project 2014 - By Alexis Klimaszewski

Thursday, August 14, 2014

When I first decided to do ASP, I have to admit I was a little skeptical. This was my first time on this trip, and my first time away from home. I’m just a fourteen year old girl. What did I know about fixing houses? As the week went on, I realized that that’s not what ASP is about. This trip is about building relationships with the families, the other churches, and God, not just houses. I realized that I was meant to go on this trip. God sent me to ASP for a reason, not only to benefit others, but to benefit myself. Read more...

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 5: St. Paul on Selfishness

Saturday, August 16, 2014

“I say this not as a command, but to prove by the earnestness of others that your love also is genuine. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” (2 Corinthians 8:8-9 RSV) One quality of life that St. Paul worked hard to uproot was that of selfishness. After all, one cannot be complete in becoming Christ-like (theosis) when self-love and covetousness are held onto. The love of Christ in the hearts of Paul’s rather hard-hearted brethren would go a long way in accomplishing what was needed for the church in Jerusalem. Read more...
