“Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. Giving thinks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God.” (Ephesians 5:19-21)

Good morning!

The giving of thanks is a big part of our Christian spirituality. The term from the Greek “thanksgiving” is literally at the heart of our worship. Thanksgiving is Eucharisteo or Eucharist. We sing this in our worship when we sing:

protection“Let us lift up our hearts, we lift them up unto the Lord. Let us give thanks unto the Lord, It is meet and right.”

We have received letters of thanks from prisoners who received the prayer book that we sent last month. Here is what some of our “flock” wrote:

Dear Fr. David,
Thank you for the prayer book that your ministry has given to me. I promise you I will give it good use...John, Utah

Dear Fr. David,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Literature for we who are Orthodox Christians is very hard to come by. Your ministry to us has a rippling effect for those of us who are part of the historic church. My good friend Timothy shared your letters of encouragement with me and you put me on the Pastoral mailing list. Thank you for the prayer book... it is very much appreciated and will be used... Leroy, New Mexico

May the beauty of heaven consume you…Fr. David
