During the month of April, a series of informal talks was given in the trapeza (church hall) of the St. Tikhon's Monastery Church during the Coffee Hour. The general theme of the series was "The Place of the Bible in Our Church." The series was well received by the parishioners of the Monastery Church.
On April 7, Dr. David Ford spoke about the Canonization process of the 27 books of the New Testament. The following Sunday, Dn. Theophan Warren, a first-year Seminarian, explained how seeing the crucial need for Holy Tradition to provide the proper interpretation of the Bible helped to bring him into the Orthodox Church from Protestantism. Then on April 21, Dr. Mary Ford presented various interesting facts about the New Testament. And for the final session of the series, newly ordained Fr. David Morrison, a third-year student, told the fascinating story of how he and his family moved from Evangelical Protestantism into Holy Orthodoxy. A professional musician, he began his presentation with singing one of his own songs.
