We were delighted and grateful that Father Ephraim was able to join us for Sunday liturgy and talk on April 2nd. As it so happens Father Paul fell ill, (he’s fully recovered, since, by the way), so we were fortunate that Fr. Ephraim was able to step in and serve the liturgy too!
After, Father Ephraim gave a talk on the subject of the sacrament of confession.
So generous, with his time, Father Ephraim fielded a variety of questions from the profound to the practical. Such as preparing for confession, balancing forgiveness with self-care with those who have abused you, to how to fast before the communion.
In his answers Father Ephraim mixed a rich knowledge of the history and traditions of various Orthodox churches
and deep and loving insight in how we can live in faith today.
A profound thank you to Father Ephraim for visiting us. We so look forward to many more visits in the future.
