2020 Hindsight

Next Step #656: New Year’s Eve expressions that don’t show up in reflections. Where are all the predictors of 2020 prophecy and how apologetics evolves. Living and doing with passion. Misdirected notions of martyrdom and the danger we’re falling into. Odd-ball occurrence? A look at Luke 19: Getting more of the right stuff. Courage to move forward with wishes for the New Year.

Babe in from the Cold

 

Bringing the Babe in from the Cold

Next Step #551 – December 27, 2018 – In limbo twixt Christmas and New Year, Fr. Vazken reflects on looking inside the manger and seeing what lurks beyond. The imperfect circumstances become the perfect story in the Nativity narrative. There is joy, eagerness, wonder, obedience and peace, and yet, beyond the dangers of materialism and the filth of drugs and addiction have claimed the lives of too many. A very personal plea to look past the Baby. The measurements of strength.

Kodak Moment No More

Next Step #500: The New Year kicks off with a look at one of the giants that didn’t make it to 2018. Unable to adapt and slow to accept changes, Kodak presents a prophetic picture as the Spirit of the Future. Fr. Vazken talks about the church, the challenges to the community of believers and a Darwinian understanding of survival. Commitment to the disenfranchised and the circle of Christian understanding.

Extra Towns on the Map

Next Step #448: Theophany Eve edition. Syncing with God’s Cosmic calendar. Looking inside the manger to become an image in an icon and delivering better gifts than frankincense, gold and myrrh. Armodoxy’s stand for the New Year and Fr. Vazken’s Christmas message. Water Blessing at Theophany – what happens when a Mayor gives her obligatory message and takes Christ out? Expected from a mayor but from a church? The possibility of Christianity without Christ – not a slow process.

2015 Year End

Next Step #395: Some year end thoughts, about the Centennial, the challenge to be, the quest for courage and the audacity to proclaim victory. Taking off on Christ’s words, “Courage, the victory is mine, I have overcome the world.” (John 16) Fr. Vazken connects the dots left throughout the year. The Icon of the Holy Martyrs’ is consecrated locally – some excerpts. Happy New Year!
