It is no secret to those who know me that I aspired to the priesthood for about 50 years of my life. For 30 of those years since I got fired from my one “full time ministry job” I’ve been a construction worker to put a lot of food on a large table under a large roof for a large family.  Since I became Orthodox almost a dozen years ago, I’ve been “THIS close” to being ordained a few times, but by God’s grace it hasn’t happened.

God, Creation and Covenant

‘In the beginning God made heaven and earth.’  (Genesis 1:1)  So begins the Holy Scripture.  The Jews were exceptional amongst all peoples of antiquity in their insistence that God and the natural order were neither to be confused nor fused.  The creation owed its being and purpose to God.  God himself was singular and unique.  There was only one God and God was one.
