Exploring the Scripture Readings from the Sunday After Ascension
June 06, 2011 Length: 44:09
On the Sunday after Ascension and before Pentecost, the appointed Scripture readings for the Divine Liturgy have striking similarities between the Apostle Reading (Acts 20) and the Gospel (John 17:1-13). Read these 2 "farewell addresses" and then listen to Fr. Tom's teaching that he recorded in his study following the Liturgy.
"I am the pastor of a Baptist church. Yet, I don't start my day without meditation, prayer, and scripture with this wonderful music playing. I have a deep admiration for Orthodoxy as you are the original church and gave us the precious jewel of the Holy Bible."
