I have recently discovered a real treat from Athanasius (of Alexandria), from the Troparion of the Feast of the Annunciation within the Orthodox Liturgy. There are more ‘daily devotions’ here enough for a lifetime. Enjoy…
“Today is the beginning of our salvation,
And the revelation of the eternal mystery!
The Son of God becomes the Son of the Virgin
As Gabriel announces the coming of Grace.
Together with him let us cry to the Theotokos:
Rejoice, O Full of Grace, the Lord is with you!”
Gralefrit is (another) blog of theological musings and sermons and other juicy tit-bits from a follower of Jesus Christ, hoping to be joined by others along the Way.
Gralefrit is a made-up word coined by the undercover policeman (played by Robin Ellis) in an episode of Fawlty Towers (A Touch of Class) who, when ordering breakfast from the maid Polly, assumed the persona of an ignorant illiterate, and ordered his grapefruit by stumbling through the menu and asked for a “gralefrit’. Classic!!
The link with this web site should be obvious: I am a God-lover/Jesus follower/Baptist church minister/aspiring-theologian/husband/father/grandfather from England, but feel that any attempts to explain the divine grapefruit of God’s Word only end up as a stuttering and incoherent stumble towards something that stretches and leans towards the real thing.
If I can tempt you with my gralefrit’s, then maybe you can be encouraged to actually taste the real thing.
Oh, and another thing, to prove I'm no crack pot, Liverpool are by far the greatest team the world has ever seen!
