Take God On Vacation With You!
Written by Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes

The summer months are upon us and we must consider that God does not go on vacation but is always present and loves us! Humbly all of us should make every effort to attend our local holy Orthodox Church even during the summer months. When we attend Church, we are able to witness Christ our Lord, and to aware of the Mother of God, who prays for us.
All of us know that the Church is a place for healing, as we encounter the Physician of our souls Christ our true God, who is reaching out to help us, save us, and keep us by His grace, as this in itself is a great blessing for us all! How compassionate indeed is Christ our loving God!

People were bringing little children to Christ to have Him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10:13-16
I have young kids – ages 5 and 3 to be specific. They’re great kids, my wife and I love them incredibly and thank God each day for the blessings He gave us. These two little blessings though can be quite active, and loud and usually at times when we wanted nothing more than for them to be still and quiet – especially when they were babies. Taking them to church was always a challenge – when one was a toddler and one was an infant, it didn’t take long for them to become bored – who needs Christ when all you really want is to run around and explore, right?

"Go ye therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit"
