Matthew 2:13-23; Galatians 1:11-19.  Without effort, we will get truth and love wrong and mess up our relationships.  It was true for Saints Luke and Cleopas, for Saint Paul, and (alas) for Herod.  It will be true for us and will affect our marriages and Church membership, too.  But God is offering us a solution.  Enjoy the show!

Ephesians 5:8-19; Luke 14:16-24.  Fr. Anthony offers a meditation on "Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine upon thee."  He encourages us to let go of the stories of ourselves and the arch of history informed by the evil days, spend time in silent awe at God's feet, and then allow Him to give our stories not just new words, but grace.  Enjoy the show!
