SUNDAY OF EXPULSION (ARDAKSMAN GIRAGI)
 
Our church Fathers have dedicated each of the Lenten Sundays to one of the mysteries that symbolize mankind's life—his birth, his sinning, his regret and his repentance. Each Sunday serves as an occasion for us to think of ways we can guide our human nature to do more good so that the period of Great Lent is more fruitful and productive.
 
The second Sunday of Great Lent is called the Sunday of Expulsion. The origins of this tradition, including its name, can be found in the Book of Genesis. Adam and Eve, having listened to the deceitful words of Satan, disobeyed the Divine Commandments and ate of the forbidden fruit. As reprimand, God deprived Adam and Eve of eternal life, saying unto them, “You were made from soil and you will become soil again" (Genesis 3:19). However, God did not immediately take Adam and Eve’s lives. Instead, He exiled them from the Garden of Eden and relegated them to a life of toil producing their own food: "So the Lord God sent him out of the Garden of Eden and made him cultivate the soil from which he had been formed" (Genesis 3:23). God also punished womankind with the pain of childbirth.

OUTREACH

OUTREACH COMMITTEE SUGGESTION
 

Have you ever had a desire to make an impact on others, but weren’t sure how?  Have you ever thought about hosting a Sunday Fellowship Table following a hokehankisd, but didn’t want to do all the preparation? 

The St. James Outreach Committee would like to suggest that you make a $100 donation to FAR.  That $100 would be used to serve a madagh (sacrificial) meal at the soup kitchen for underprivileged Armenians in Armenia. 

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Der Hovhan or check out   www.farusa.org  or www.weareayo.org.
