Fall Adult Education Class 2016 - The Life of Christ
Six Classes on Wednesday evenings, thru Nov. 30
"To follow our long-standing tradition of reading a book together in the Fall as the basis of our class sessions and discussions, I have chosen a fairly new book by Fr. Patrick Reardon, titled The Jesus We Missed - The Surprising Truth About the Humanity of Christ.
"Fr. Patrick is a prolific writer and an excellent biblical scholar. This latest of his publications is filled with a constant stream of insights into the Gospels' portrayal of Christ. It should lead to some exciting and revealing discussions.”
— Fr. Steven
Adult Education Program
Ongoing study of the Scriptures and Spiritual Reading in general
St John Chrysostom famously said that without continuous study of the scriptures, we can scarcely hope to be saved, and St Seraphim of Sarov taught that we should be "swimming in the law of the Lord."
How fortunate therefore for us that our pastor, Fr Steven, has established an annual regimen of insightful studies to build us up in our most holy faith. Broken up roughly into semesters, we have a multi-week Summer Bible Study, a six-week long Fall Adult Education Class, a special Winter Reading Circle in which we read and discuss some work of classic literature, and occasional parish-wide discussion events, in which we concentrate for an evening or two on key topics of interest.
While these ongoing efforts are essential, we must not overlook our Catechumen and Inquirers Classes, which have been virtually continuous of late. Designed especially for those new to Orthodoxy, parishioners are always welcome to join these introductory classes to refresh themselves with the basics of our faith.
On this page, we feature the current semester's program, as well as links to our archives of past classes and resources.
