  • Ask Fr. John: A lesson on why people choose to fast

    Why do we fast? — G.

    Part one
    Your question is timely since we are currently in the Nativity Fast.
    Two overly simplified answers are: because the Lord Himself Who is God fasted and because Christ said “when you fast ...” Mt. 6:16.
    We know that fasting was practiced in the ancient church.
    The Apostles prescribed the weekly fasts on Wednesday and Friday in the ancient Apostolic text, “The Didache.” See the church website for Ancient Christian texts.
    However, this is not the main reason for fasting.
    There are several reasons why we fast. One is found where Paul says that Christ God emptied himself when he became incarnate. Ph 2:7.

  • Bible Answers: Learning to 'turn the other cheek'

    “I can’t figure how to ‘turn the other cheek’ without being walked on.” — Katie

    “Turning the other cheek” is a radical departure from our “normal” response to insult. Most of us are inclined to want to slap in return.
    Why would Jesus say that the “normal” response (even if it is justified) should not only be resisted, but should be replaced with an offer of the other cheek — and why would He make this one of his important points in the “Sermon on the Mount” (Mt. 5:38-42)?
    Consider these truths:
    Anger and revenge will get you nowhere. They only incite more anger and retaliation. Better, he said, to stop the anger cycle before it goes any further.

  • Cole to serve as interim pastor in WR

    Los Alamos is a remarkable place for a pastorate, in the opinion of Rev. Dr. Harry A. Cole, the incoming interim pastor of White Rock United Presbyterian Church.
    Cole comes to the pulpit most recently from Westminster Church in Roswell and previously from the First Presbyterian Church and the First Christian Church in El Paso, Texas.
    While in El Paso, he was also the executive director of INSIGHTS, the city science museum, an experience that piqued his interest in a pastorate in Los Alamos.

  • Ask Fr. John: Being close to God by going to church

    Why do we stress church attendance? — JBA

    The Church is literally the Body of Christ. This means that corporately, not individually, we are Christ himself, still incarnate in the world, doing His work.
    If a person desires with their whole heart, one can unite to Christ and become a member of his body. Ideally, this is motivated by a simple desire to know God and to be where he is.
    Out of this love for God comes the desire to follow his commands and to worship him. However, this happens in a context which is not our own.
    Orthodoxy maintains the ancient Jewish belief that God is manifest in the temple.
