Children's Sermon For July
The sermon was about the 12 American saints. Fr. Andrew explained that to be a saint means to be saved. We know they were saved because they lived holy lives. Then he gave examples of what they did.
Fr. Andrew just returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. He brought back a large photo icon of the Last Judgement which was painted on the back wall of the Greek Orthodox Church in Capernaum. He explained that the saints are in heaven and that's were we will go if we believe in Jesus Christ. If we don't believe we go to hell to be with the Devil and all his angels where there is a river of fire.
