Right now we are reading a book by Rod Dreher "The Benedict Option, a strategy for Christians in a post-Christian nation."
A very timely book for everything that's going on in the society right now.
We meet via Google Meet; therefore, reply to this email to get the meeting link.
Let us give thanks then, not only that God has calmed the storm, but that He allowed it to take place. Not only that He rescued us from shipwreck, but that He permitted us to fall into such distress. And such an extreme peril to hang over us. Thus also Paul bids us "in everything give thanks" (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
- Saint John Chrysostom
