Fr. John bids Los Alamos farewell

-A A +A

By Fr. John Anderson


To the faithful readership, I regret to say that this will be the last column in the Los Alamos Monitor. I have been assigned to an Orthodox Church in Texas. 

It has been a joy to be a contributor to this religion column. Thank you to all who have kept up with the column and shared your comments and feedback.

Please know that for those who are interested, I will continue publishing on my blog called “Eden and Nod.” The address is edenandnod.blogspot.com.

Frequently, we have to deal with the grief that comes when a friend or loved one moves away. 

The experience is akin to that which occurs when we a loved one dies. 

Even though we may grieve, as Christians, we know that the departed one is victorious in Christ’s resurrection. 

Since Christ’s resurrection fundamentally transformed death, we have good courage. 

When we are in Christ, separation is not a matter of despair, but can be a matter of selfish upset at not having the object of our affection for a period of time. 

However, when we are in Christ, distance, whether the distance created by death, or in moving, it becomes a “non-issue.”
