  • Ask Fr. John: Explaining spiritual versus religious beliefs

    Is Orthodoxy “religious” or “spiritual.” — Anonymous

    Part 1
    It depends on how you understand the words “religious” and “spiritual.” I hear so frequently the sentiment that one is “spiritual, not religious.” Really? Orthodox too! At least according to the more classical definition of “religion.”
    The word “religion” implies a movement of humanity toward God or “the greater.” Thus, religion becomes a matter of human persons searching out and discerning God or  the “higher things,” via personal experience. In other words, humanity tries to figure out “god.”
    In Orthodox Christianity, we believe that God is on the approach to us and that he has revealed himself to us. In order to demonstrate my point, I need to articulate some of our beliefs.
    The Orthodox gathering of believers believe that God has revealed to humanity how he has existed from eternity as Trinity.
    We believe that God, in order to more perfectly reveal himself and actually restore us back to himself, became a human man while remaining God. This was the God-man named Jesus Christ, God the Son of God the Father.

  • What it means to be spiritual and not religious

    “I hear some people say they are ‘spiritual’ but not ‘religious.’  What do they mean?”— Judy

     

    The place to start is to ask your friends what they mean by this statement. Absent their response here, we can make a few general observations.

    Some individuals who say this often are expressing their rejection of “institutional” religion.  They may have been burned by an unpleasant “church” experience or perhaps simply consider themselves above the mundane, human-shaped thing which often passes for “church” in our day.  

    Their critique is not entirely unwarranted — there is plenty of room for improvement if not radical change in the way “church” often appears in our culture.

  • Bible Answers: Living in the moment vs. planning for the future

    “I’m confused.  Should I make plans for the future or should I just live today and trust God for tomorrow?” — Anne

    The simple answer is “Yes!” Today is all you have, so make the most of every opportunity to live, love, learn, serve, share, celebrate, work well and play freely.
    Little is gained by worrying excessively about a tomorrow that you cannot control (Matt. 6:25, 34).
    At the same time, life in this world requires (for most of us, at least) that we prepare for the future, planning for our education and career, saving some money and investing wisely and setting something aside for later years of life.
    Our plans may and often do change and change presents challenges of its own, but some kind of plan is typically better than no plan at all.
    The question goes beyond simply whether or not we have a plan, however. The issue also involves matters of attitude and faith. James warns against making plans in a cocky, cavalier fashion (James 4:13-16).
    We are not told in this text to give up our plans and live only for today, but we are reminded that we neither know the future nor control the length of our days. Thus, we should face the future with a little humility and a lot of faith.  James enjoins us to seek the will of the One who holds the future.

  • 2012 High Holidays at the Jewish Center

    The Los Alamos Jewish Center community welcomes a guest for this year’s High Holiday season, Rabbi Melissa Klein. Klein will not only officiate religious services, but will also lead community events that weave together traditional high holiday values with the theme, “Generation to Generation.”
    Longtime Los Alamos rabbi Jack Shlachter was invited to lead services at a synagogue in Vienna, Austria. His acceptance of the invitation prompted the LAJC to engage Klein.
    Klein, of Philadelphia, is one of Los Alamos’ own — she was raised in Los Alamos and the Jewish Center was a second home to her.  
    She offered her first sermon to the community when she was a teenager. During her early 20s, she returned for two summers, and later she co-organized and helped lead High Holidays.  
    Klein’s parents, Morris and Susan, who plan to join the community for Yom Kippur, lived in Los Alamos from 1969-1999, before moving to Washington, D.C. Morris served as president of the Jewish Center and Susan was an active volunteer, organizing many Ghost Ranch retreats for the community over the years.
