September 24, 2012 Length: 17:42
A temptation for some Orthodox Christians is to take in the beauty of the church services while remaining somewhat mentally disengaged. Fr Tom reminds us that Christ's command to "launch out into the deep" is given to everyone to plumb the depths of the wisdom and word of God. (Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost)
"It is a very important connection with Orthodox Christians for me. I love the Orthodox way of thinking. I don’t know why I am not an Orthodox. Perhaps it is because of my cultural background. The Orthodox way of thinking is to me like a new language. God bless you all."
