He outlined the origin of the book and explained the late acceptance into the canon of scripture as one of the reasons why it is not read in any of the liturgical services of the Orthodox Church.

Scene from Advent Retreat.

He pointed out how the book has a history of misinterpretation since it describes events happening at the time when it was written. He said since it is highly symbolic we must be careful about applying the symbols to modern events.

Garden Center Visit For November

Scene from Garden Center Visit For November.

Fr. Andrew started our visit with a story about Abraham. How God in order to test Abraham's faith, told him he must sacrifice his son Isaac. Abraham was obedient to God's will and was preparing to plunge a knife into Isaac's breast, when he heard the voice of the angel of the Lord, telling him not to hurt his son. Abraham had proved his love for God by his willingness to sacrifice his child. God then blessed Abraham and Isaac.

Scene from Garden Center Visit For November.

Fr. Andrew told a story about two men who both were paid their wages and an apple. The first man hid his apple because he didn't want to share it with anyone, forget about it and it became rotten. The second man shared his apple with his mother and sister. Because he shared, all three enjoyed the apple. God gives blessing willing to us and we should give willing to others.

He quoted the verse from the bible about sowing bountifully and sowing sparingly. He compared the seeds to the money we receive. We can spend it all or give some of it to God through his Church.
