The Opinionated Tailor
The Honorable Workman
Episode date: October 14, 2008
Hello and welcome to “The Opinionated Tailor Talks Shop”. It’s been a busy time in my life lately, moving into a new home and constructing a new workshop. My life seems to be somewhat phasic, with periods of lull followed by segments of busy-ness and concentrated activity. I used to worry about this, but over time, I came to understand that this was a fairly normal part of the human experience. Hunter-gatherers had their times of feast and famine and the proceeding agriculturally-based cultures had summer’s bounty followed by winter’s sleepy time of preparation for future needs. Truth be told, as much as I enjoy…
Frederica Here and Now
God So Loved the World

Frederica: Well, here I am. Today I am in the back seat of a Camry (so it feels very familiar- my husband has a Camry, too). This one is a 2000 Camry, ours is a 2004, and the driver is Fr. Ted Stylianopoulos, and lovely Presvytera Faye is sitting in the front seat with him. We are leaving their cabin in the gorgeous town of Alstead, New Hampshire, where the leaves are turning, and it just looks like the glory of God ablaze in the woods here. It’s something else.

The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried; and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus in his bosom.
And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for…

The Lord told this story, There was a rich man who had lots of food and fancy clothes. A poor man, named Lazarus, used to sit outside the gate of his yard. He wished he could be given just the scraps of food that fell from the rich man’s table at dinner.
It seemed as if the rich man had everything. One day Lazarus died. He was carried to heaven and had a place next to blessed Abraham.
One day the rich man died. He was not in heaven, but rather, miserable in Hades. He looked over and saw Lazarus. He called to Abraham, “Have mercy on me and send Lazarus to bring me water.”
Abraham said to the rich man, “Remember how…

At that time, there came to Jesus a man named Jairus, who was a ruler of the synagogue; and falling at Jesus’ feet, he besought him to come to his house, for he had an only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she was dying.
As Jesus went, the people pressed round him. And a woman who had had a flow of blood for twelve years, and had spent all her living upon physicians, and could not be healed by any one, came up behind him, and touched the fringe of his garment; and immediately her flow of blood ceased. And Jesus said, “Who was it that touched me?” When all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the multitudes surround you and…
