On September 15-18, 2014 His Grace Bishop David joined his fellow hierarchs at the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in North America's annual meeting in Dallas, Texas. The links below are two statements issued by the assembly, the first a message to the faithful, the second a message concerning the violence in the Middle East.

Message to the Faithful in North America

Statement on current events in the Middle East

God Loves a Cheerful Giver

Since God began revealing Himself to man, has had a condition from which man recognized that what he had was a gift from God.  God required man to return to him a tithe from his bounty, not once, but three times.  Once to the Temple for the upkeep of the priests; once for the poor; and once for the Pilgrimages that occurred to Jerusalem three times a year.  St. Paul, explaining this to the Corinthians in his Second Epistle (9:7) condensed it and gave it that “Christ-like touch”, saying:  So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.  Jesus wants us to give to Him because we want to, not out of a sense of obligation.  He has been generous to us, we should be generous to Him.
