Volume 4: Number 2

This month, Wonder is publishing the homilies given by four Orthodox attendants at the 2013 Festival of Young Preachers, an event sponsored by the Academy of Preachers . The theme for this year’s festival was “The Gospel and the City” and several passages of scripture were offered for the attendants to preach on. The passages chosen by our writers/preachers were Genesis 11, Psalm 137 and Acts 1.

With these words, once spoken and now written, each of our authors offers us a proclamation of the Gospel. As always, we hope you find these reflections edifying and inspiring, and may they draw us all closer together in our Lord Jesus Christ.
