Fr. Nicholas Louh is the Pastor of St. John the Divine Greek Orthodox Church in Jacksonville, FL. Visit his parish website for more resources and information to help you in your walk of faith https://stjohnthedivinejax.org/
God is pleased when we influence our world according to the teachings of Jesus and we have more influence than we might think. In this sermon, Fr. Nicholas references an interesting study by Dr. Albert Bandura on Social Learning Theory, we see how easy it is to be an influence to the people around us. And he warns us, not to influence with bitterness, but to be like salt and make things better.
