Archpriest John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir's Seminary was our guest on Forgiveness Sunday.
He concelebrated at the the Holy Liturgy, and preached the homily.
After the Liturgy Fr. John led us on an examination of the Paschal sermon (an ancient haggadah) of St. Melito of Sardis, dating from the second century.
Christ's death on the Cross was thoroughly examined in its "types" found in the Scriptures. We understood that through the incarnation, the act of creation of mankind begun in Genesis was only completed ("It is finished") by the death of Christ on the cross. We find our life in our Death, which is our birth into the Kingdom. Because it was embraced by Christ, we too are called to embrace they mystery of our own death as birth into our new life in Christ.
After the talk an ice cream social was held with numerous artisan ice creams made by Jaana Hinkkanen.
The day ended with Forgiveness Vespers at 3PM.
