Sermon – Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese Convention, 2019
No doubt, we live in dark times.
But, hear me out …
When I grab a flashlight – I don’t need the flashlight to tell me how dark it is!
“Whoa, dark over there! There it is, darkness! Oh boy, I’m scared of the dark!”
This is silly … we all know how LIGHT WORKS.
I don’t need the light to curse the darkness! Same as with a candle … I need the darkness to be dispersed, banished, by the light!
What I’m saying is – and I’m speaking to myself here: The world does not need more DARK CHRISTIANS. [“If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!”]
God forbid that those of us who have seen the Light — who follow the Light, who have been saved by the Light — continually talk about the Dark.
One of the most uplifting hymns …
