God is a fire that warms and kindles the heart and inward parts. Hence, if we feel in our hearts the cold which comes from the devil - for the devil is cold - let us call on the Lord. He will come to warm our hearts with perfect love, not only for Him but also for our neighbor, and the cold of him who hates the good will flee before the heat of His countenance.

St. Seraphim of SarovĀ 

The following verse seems to indicate original sin: "For behold, I was conceived in transgressions, and in sins my mother bore me.” (Psalm 50(51):5) I thought that the Orthodox Church does not accept the doctrine of original sin?

Transfiguration of the Lord

On Wednesday, August 6th, the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord, grapes and various fruits were blessed at the conclusion of the Divine Liturgy.

"The blessing of grapes, as well as other fruits and vegetables on this day is the most beautiful and adequate sign of the final transfiguration of all things in Christ. It signifies the ultimate flowering and fruitfulness of all creation in the paradise of God’s unending Kingdom of Life where all will he transformed by the glory of the Lord." (Volume II - Worship, The Church Year by Fr. Thomas Hopko)

Following the Divine Services a pool party was held for those in attendance and other guests of the church.
