III. Lectionary Reflections on Matthew 18:15-22

6. My Brother's Keeper - Conflict Among Christians

Jesus calls us to be a community that is not individualistic, but one that works together to keep each other straight, to keep each other holy. We cannot be faithful Christians if we see ourselves purely as individuals. ...

7. Redemptive Discipline

Discipline necessarily means confrontation and is established in Christ's call for us to care for the spiritual growth of one another. We are required to intervene when Christian friends and family go astray, otherwise sin might destroy that person. In a real sense, we are our brother's keeper. ...

8. Before You Unfriend

Jesus talks directly to his followers to tell us what our fellowship is to be like. If a brother or sister in the faith hurts you, angers you, saddens you, or does you wrong in any way…you go and talk to them about it directly, one on one. ..

9. Learning to See - A Homily for the Feast of the Transfiguration

Do you want to see? Then be willing to make the climb with Jesus. He gives us vision if we climb. He gives us vision if we are immersed in His Word, which is Scripture and Church teaching. ...

10. The Transfiguration--and Exodus--of Our Lord

 Jesus is our exodus. He is our way out, the way out of death and sin and the devil's grip. Jesus is our way to, the way to the Father, the way, the truth, and the life. The way leads through the cross, but we know that it leads to glory. ...

11. Trials to Transfiguration

What is it that gives hope, peace, and serene joy to the Christian life? Briefly, it is the vision of glory, a glimpse into the Promised Land of Heaven, which the Lord can and does give to His people. ...

12. Love, Suffering and the Transfiguration

Peter, James and John witness, for just a little while, the glory of Christ's Divinity shine forth in His humanity. Abram saw God in the symbols of a cloud of smoke and fire, but, they see God, not in the symbol of a torch, but in His Incarnated person. ...

13. Family - an Orthodox Christian Perspective

Marriage as sacrament was instituted comparatively late in the Christian Church, but it appears that the soteriological significance of this institution may be traced as far back as the creation of male and female, as presented in the Genesis narration. ...

14. How Should Christians Discipline Their Children?

Raising a child in the "training and instruction of the Lord" includes restrained, corrective, and, yes, loving physical discipline. ...

15. Revival Starts with You

People are watching you. So, when you say you will do something, do it. When you fail at something, admit it. Don't claw and scrape and climb over others like everyone else.

16. How You Can Have Hope in Any Circumstance

I recently read about an experiment performed a number of years ago to see the effect that hope has on those undergoing hardship. ...
