Fr Barnabas Powell is the priest of Sts Raphael, Nicholas and Irene Greek Orthodox Church in Cumming, Georgia. He and his family are converts to the Orthodox faith.
St. Paul tells the Romans that our God is the God of Steadfastness AND Encouragement. It’s this vision of God that makes all the hard work of faithfulness worth all the effort to stay focused on a daily practice of the Faith. And it’s only that kind of practice that will be a worthy legacy to pass on to our children!
