From the Pastor's Desk

     Recently I had the happy opportunity to watch “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.” During the course of the film, we learn that Kosta and Maria’s marriage was not valid or licit. The drama intensifies when Maria does not want to remarry Kosta because she was bothered for 50 years by his awkward marriage proposal: “I am going to America. You coming or not?”     
     When the couple finally arrive in church, Maria once again decides to call off the marriage. Kosta’s brother, Panos, who remained in Greece, tells her, “50 years ago my brother had a hopeful smile on his face because you said you would go to America with him and live an adventure…” At this point, Maria sees her life differently. In the joys and struggles of building a family, she had forgotten that she was invited to live an adventure. Her life was an adventure and the things that seemed like obstacles were really possibilities.
