Sidney West
This Sunday, 18th April, sees the 10th anniversary of the death of my father, Sidney West. He was not baptised, nor did he have any belief, therefore I ask you to pray strongly for the respose of his soul.

Dear Kirk,

May Jesus bless and heal your father, and take him to God's paradise of peace and love.

With love and prayers,
Antony-Paul

Kirk,

I do so gladly and with all my heart, as the same was true of my own father who died many years ago.

In Christ,

John

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)

May God in His infinite compassion receive your father and all the departed into His Eternal Kingdom!

Sadly, many Christians seem to believe in a god who is a cross between a lawyer and a forensic accountant, whose aim is to exclude rather to receive, and to cast out rather than to draw in. That is not the teaching of our Lord.

He taught us that in His Father?s Kingdom there are many rooms....we cannot know who will be given a place in that Kingdom and are warned against attempting to make such judgements.

While it is heresy to say that all must be saved, it is sound Orthodox belief to hope and pray that all may, through the incomprehensible love of God, be saved.

May your father, and John?s father, and my father be amongst them.

Fr. Gregory - thank you for that.

I've come across the God who is a cross between an attorney and a tax inspector, he appears to be the one we make in our own image. The one who is Infinite in love and understanding seems to be one in whose image we are to be remade; a harder task to which we are all called.

In Christ,

John
