A Message from Father James

For roughly the first 1000 years, all of Christianity was the Orthodox Church established by Christ and handed down directly to His apostles. The current framework of Orthodox Christian worship and community that we practice here was established prior to Roman Catholicism. The unaltered original doctrine of Christian salvation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to redeem us, remains in the Orthodox Church and her sacraments. The original fourth century communion service, the Divine Liturgy, is still served in the Orthodox Church and received by the faithful every week. The ancient, unchanged, and timeless truth of the Orthodox Church is one of the reasons it is still growing as the modern world increasingly shuns spirituality.

The Orthodox Church is structured. It is mystical. It honors the saints who have gone before us and who have lived the faith and had a lasting positive impact. It is ancient, but addresses the same ancient human needs and conditions that still confront us every day, and it provides our salvation through Christ. Orthodox Christianity is the saving ark on the storm-tossed sea of this world with its non-stop crises.

As the pastor of the holy community of St. Innocent Orthodox Church parish, I invite you to experience the timeless wisdom, strength, spirituality, and holiness of the Orthodox Church for yourself. No matter who you are, the Orthodox Church has always been your Church. Come home!

With respect, and In Christ,
Father James Robinson

Advent Fast

Remember that the Advent season begins November 14th! Advent is a joyous fast in which we prepare ourselves for the coming of Christ in the flesh. Use this fasting period to slow down your busy life, contemplate Christ, and engage in the spiritual life to a greater extent. Our bookstore and library and full of books to read during this season! Or listen to podcasts on Ancient Faith Radio. Trade some worldly activities for spiritual activities.

For more information about Advent and its importance, check out the articles on the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese website
