This sermon was delivered at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church on the Sunday of the Fathers of the First Ecumenical Council, May 20, 2018.
I think it’s safe to day that the main reason most of us are here today is for life. We hope for eternal life in God’s Kingdom. But we also hope for a better life in this world — fuller, with less stress and more meaning. As we read the Gospels we discover that the kind of life we are looking for is directly related to truth. But we live in a world where truth gets harder and harder to recognize.
