why do we Orthodox believe what we believe and do what we do?
Deepen your roots, branch out in your faith, and experience the delicious fruit of a spiritual awakening from The "WHYs of Orthodox Christianity" Class. Each week's adventure is a discovery of WHY we Orthodox Christians believe what we believe...and WHY we do the things we do. The scope of this stirring journey takes us from an introduction to the inside of the Church and WHY the architecture and icons are arranged the way they are...to an introduction to God as Trinity and WHY that is so significant for us...to an understanding of Sacrament and WHY the sacramental life of the Church is so life-giving...to an exploration of the Divine Liturgy and the services and prayers that surround it, helping us to understand what it all has to do with us as God's loving stewards to His creation.
B&W to technicolor
One sweet, 93 year old, Greek lady, after having grown up and spent her whole life in the Greek Orthodox Church, joyously remarked, "Because I've taken these "WHYs of Orthodoxy" classes for three years now, it's almost as though I have a whole new Faith. I've gone from experiencing our worship as though it was all merely in black and white each week—to experiencing it as though it was now all suddenly changed into technicolor."
Class is generally held each Wednesday at 7PM. *Because this class goes on periodic breaks, please check with Fr. Boyd [FrBoyd.StBasil@gmail.com] to make sure that class is being held on the night you wish to attend.*
