Fr. Gary made mention of the fair in his homily but not as an advertisement but, rather, as a need for an attitude check. He quoted St. Paul in his passage to the Romans how the strong need to bear up with the failings of the weak. Perhaps, we feel we are among the strong because of our Orthodox faith and those who do not go to Church are the weak. We should be very careful not to sit in judgment on them, saying to ourselves, Well, you guys should be going to Church. Instead, we are to be humble examples for it is only in humility that we grow in Christ. Fr. Gary went on to say that there will be a lot of visitors and we must keep our attitude of humility.
Well said, Fr. Gary!
God willing, I hope to be at the fair later on today and I will give you a full report! :)
