Wisdom of the week




 A Church Garden

1. First, plant five rows of peas:
Presence, Promptness, Preparation, Purity, Perseverance

 

2. Next to these, plant three rows of squash:
Squash gossip, Squash criticism, Squash indifference

 

3. No garden is complete without turnips:
Turn up for the meetings, Turn up with a smile, Turn up with

determination to be as faithful to God & His Church as you are to sports, cell phones and Face book.

 

Now that’s a garden that’s sure to please the Master AND satisfy

Things We Should Know While in Church


In the Orthodox Church there are numerous customs and traditions that are important parts of our worship. Some of these customs are universal to the Church, while some may vary from parish to parish, or cultural tradition.

The following, adapted from an article by Father David Barr and others,
addresses questions most often asked by those new to the faith, and even those not so new…

 
Preparing the Heart

The time spent prior to attending Church Services will have an effect on your ability to experience God's presence through the Liturgy and prayers of the Church. Whenever possible, one should begin to quiet one's heart in preparation for arrival at Church. This is particularly the case for the Divine Liturgy. It is good to put away worldly concerns, and to come a bit early instead of "rushing" to Church. The Jesus Prayer, for instance, may be said by the individual or family in the car on the way to services.

Conduct in the Church Temple
All should be done in a spirit of reverence and worship with the sense that one is standing in the Presence of the Lord, the Angels and the Saints. It is therefore not appropriate to chew gum, talk unnecessarily during services, or unnecessarily distract others. One should, however, feel very much at "home" in the Temple, moving when appropriate for the sake of veneration and worship, attending to the needs of children, and welcoming and assisting guests to experience Orthodox worship.

Entering the Church Temple
Arriving early to Church allows time for lighting candles and veneration of icons, as well as the "warming" of the heart for prayer. When entering the Church, cross yourself in prayer, bow and venerate the icons at the entrance. In order not to distract others from prayer or to show a lack of reverence, do not enter or leave the Temple during:

¨ The Epistle or Gospel reading;
¨ During the sermon (homily);
¨ During the Great Entrance;
¨ During the Anaphora and Consecration of the Holy Gifts at the Divine Liturgy;

¨ On all occasions when the Priest turns toward the people.
