When people think of their New Year’s resolutions, they often think of things they need to stop doing: They need to go on a diet, quit smoking…things like that. But here’s something you can add to your life: imitating God by being generous with others.

St. John of Kronstadt says, “Look at all the earth supplies in summer and in autumn! Every Christian, especially the priest, ought to imitate God’s bountifulness. Let your table be open to everybody, like the table of the Lord.”

God has blessed us with many things: use the New Year to start sharing them with others.

"A wonderful resource to understand the Orthodox Church. Though Evangelical, I have a profound respect for the Orthodox Church and her believers. Many enlightening programs have given me an inkling of a bigger faith; I don’t always agree, but you all have great stuff."
