Sermon 24 Mar 2019

Humble yourself! by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  All sin separates us from God, but the sin of pride is especially deadly.  The opposite of pride is humility.  We are consistently exhorted to humble ourselves.  One key to humbling ourselves is fasting: abstaining from food for a time (and not making up for it afterward).  Jesus expects us to fast, just as He expects us to give and to pray.  Therefore, humble yourself before the Lord.
