Hearing from God

Greetings in the name of our Lord JESUS Christ.
 
THE GOSPEL READING
Luke 4:14-21
 
 

4:14 Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country.

4:15 He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.

4:16 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read,

4:17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:

4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free,

4:19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

4:20 And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him.

4:21 Then he began to say to them, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
 
 A Bible is a book filled with stories of people who have met God. Those people are our people. Their stories are our stories. We read their stories because we want to remember who God is, who we are, and what we believe, so that we will know how to live.
We often hear from our ministers and teachers that the Bible is basic instructions before leaving earth.  “BIBLE”  In our e-electronics most of us have the bible available to us each day without talking around the paper book.  We still find it hard to have time to read it.  Each week you receive the Sunday Program with the scriptures printed in full for the given Sunday.  I request through the email that you please review the readings for Sunday and give the Holy Spirit something to work with. 
In just a few weeks we will celebrate Ask Wed and the start of the 40 days of Lent.  We in the African Orthodox Church are invited to pray during the 40days of Lent.  This will include reflections that present the daily readings of the Liturgy to focus readers on the Paschal Mystery and the Gospel’s message of forgiveness.  Please check your emails for additional information.
In the Master’s Yoke,
 
+Archbishop James Salisbury Jr., OSB., Rector
