Rev T  :  “I need your help more than ever” !

 

If you only listen to one of our blogs, this is the one! 

 

Quote ………...“Today I spoke to Fr T and explained that this year we had added a number of new fundraisers and given he was unable to attend, because of

the EBOLA outbreak, that we (committee members in AU) were thinking that we might cancel these new fundraisers, as the response, was so far low.

 

… I would rather have walked over hot coals than listen to his response, I have never heard him so frustrated, it is hard to listen to, and not feel somewhat,

helpless and even selfish.   ……..   ( What really made me squirm, is his comment that he is making his own burial plans; just in case ! ) ”

 

Dear Rev Themi Friends and Supporters ( in Australia and around the world )

 

The world seems to be falling apart; nation against nation, wars, famines and deadly diseases. And amongst all these evils, we have a man who cares nothing for himself, so now more than ever, we need to pull together and do the best we can to support this man of faith.

 

Please consider attending and supporting one of the fundraiser in your city, details for Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra & Melbourne HERE.

 

And if you can’t make it please consider helping with a donation or gift HERE.

 

Orthodoxy has two meanings. The first is “true teaching.” The Orthodox Church believes that she has maintained and handed down the Christian faith, free

from error and distortion, from the days  of the Apostles. The second definition, is “true praise.” To bless, praise, and glorify God the Father, Son, and Holy

Spirit is the fundamental purpose of the Church. All her activities, even her doctrinal formulations, are directed towards this goal !

 

Orthodoxy believes that the Christian Faith and the Church are inseparable. It is impossible to know Christ, to share in the life of the Holy Trinity, or to be considered a Christian, apart from the Church. It is in the Church that the Christian Faith is proclaimed and maintained. It is through the Church that an

individual is nurtured in the Faith !

 

The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is

pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, defended and died for the Faith of the Apostles.
