Sermons from Saint Anthony of the Desert Mission: Part Seven

October 7, 2015 Length: 13:48

This week Fr. Gabriel considers the Epistle lesson, II Corinthians 9:6-11, and its preceding chapter and following verses. He works with the text regarding Paul's request for an offering grounded in the grace which has fulfilled the lives of the Corinthian Christians from three angles: the church's abilities at responding to human needs out of mercy over against the industry of service; the false gospel of prosperity that is given the lie by Paul's text; and the inner strength that we receive in terms of meaning and purpose in life through the grace of Christ, a strength and fulfillment so obviously lacking in contemporary society and whose loss was again demonstrated in the tragic events in Oregon this past week.
