Below is the weekly lectionary sermon by ++H.E. Abp. Dr. Stephen Michael. As is broacasted weekly at 3PM CET on : The Orthodox Church of the Culdees(Celtic) facebook page. It is always open for comments, also for fellowship LIVE in the chatroom etc.
Here’s the lection for Sabbath:
[Rom 6:15-23 KJV] 15 “What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19 I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. 20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things [is] death. 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin [is] death; but the gift of God [is] eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Malachi 1:11 “For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same My name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto My name, and a pure offering: for My name shall be great among the tribes, saith YAHWEH of hosts.”
Title of the Sabbath message was “Should We Choose To Sin”?
Because of technical issues we are also making available the audio only version. Improvement on positioning and lighting should be next week. Also we will have a better microphone that has much better sound. You can download and hear the message from our talkshoe channel at the following URL http://recordings.talkshoe.com/TC-73940/TS-1186407.mp3 **download mp3**
Every Saturday Sabbath we broadcast a portion of our services. After the intermission from Divine services and the Eucharist we broadcast our live sermon on the lection for the day. Send any prayer requests or comments beforehand and we will try to include it. You’re welcome to participate with us in fellowship via the chat window.
