Join us each Wednesday during Lent after the 6:00 P.M. Liturgy of Presantified gifts for a Lenten pot-luck dinner in the taverna. Following dinner, Father Christos will lead a discussion of a few chapters of Bearing God: The life and works of St. Ignatius of Antioch the God-Bearer.
From the bookseller:
St. Ignatius, first-century Bishop of Antioch, called the “God-bearer,” is one of the earliest witnesses to the truth of Christ and the nature of the Christian life. Tradition tells us that as a small child, Ignatius was singled out by Jesus Himself as an example of the childlike faith all Christians must possess (see Matthew 18:1–4). In Bearing God, Fr. Andrew Damick recounts the life of this great pastor, martyr, and saint, and interprets for the modern reader five major themes in the pastoral letters he wrote: martyrdom, salvation in Christ, the bishop, the unity of the Church, and the Eucharist.
The V. Rev. Andrew Stephen Damick is pastor of St. Paul Orthodox Church of Emmaus, Pennsylvania, and author of multiple books from Ancient Faith Publishing. He is host of the Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy and Roads from Emmaus podcasts on Ancient Faith Radio.
We will be meeting February 21, February 28, March 7, March 14, and March 21. The book will be available in the church bookstore and library.
Please note: It is strongly recommended that spiritual literature is discussed with your father confessor, or spiritual father or mother.
