First Fruits of Christian Living: The Stewardship of Time and Great Lent
The period of Great Lent calls us to make a sacred tithe of our time, and engage more deeply in our spiritual efforts as a way of the stewardship of our whole life. In doing so we’re encouraged to offer our time to the Lord well – daily, weekly and annually in a way that leads to our salvation.
Redeeming the Time: The Purpose of Great Lent
The epistle for St John Climacus, from Ephesians 5:9-19, is intended to describe the things the holy do and the attainments they accomplish, and in the context of the Great Fast, it is also a superb summation of the purpose of Great Lent, and the difference between a Saint and a regular person. Since all Saints have common features, somehow, stories about St. Nectarios of Aegina get worked into the exegesis of the selection, and also advice about how to live circumspectly, in our modern world, which is very hostile to quietness and reflection.
