Reflection on College Conference East 2015 - By Katharine Wright

Sunday, February 14, 2016

This winter I attended the OCF College Conference for the second year at Antiochian Village. Once again I got to reconnect and spend valuable time with my friends from Camp Nazareth and feel at home. Although I never attended Antiochian Village as a camper or staff member, it reminds me of Camp Nazareth in the ways everyone comes together and the presence of God is so powerful in those spaces. Camp is one of the places where I felt the most connected to God in my life, and after years of attending and working at Camp Nazareth, and establishing a home there, it feels amazing to be able to do that in another place.

Be  The Bee - Video Series

Latest Episode (2/5/16)
Be the Bee #92 - Be Not Afraid   "On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18) You'll never look at this Bible quote, or the Church, in the same way again. Hell isn't invading the Church; instead, the Church is invading Hell. Christ has broken down the gates of Hell, and our job as Christians is to join Him in bringing light to even the darkest corners of existence.

On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 81: Giving Without Love

Sunday, February 14, 2016

A reading of the Gospel according to St. Mark reveals the appearance of scribes on several occasions. Scribes in ancient Israel were learned men whose business was to study the Law, transcribe it, and write commentaries on it. In Mark’s Gospel the scribes who show up do so as opponents of Jesus. For example, Mark tells us that the scribes ask questions of Jesus, and make comments that throw an negative light on what Jesus was doing (see Mark 2:16; 3:22; 7:5). However, in one instance, Jesus, in discussion with a scribe, says, “You are not far from the kingdom of God” (Mark 12:34 RSV). This should make any reader of Mark’s Gospel take notice. What did that scribe, that opponent of Jesus, say that would evoke this response from Jesus? The scribe responded to Jesus’ assertion that the whole law revolved around love for God and neighbor: “…you have truly said that (God) is one, … to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices” (Mark 12:32-33 RSV). Why did Jesus say that this scribe was not far from the kingdom of God? Read more...
