On Tuesday, October 22, 2013, the St. Tikhon's hosted this year's second lecture in its Annual Fall Lecture series. The community welcomed Fr. Moses Berry, founder of the Brotherhood of St. Moses the Black. The topic of Fr. Moses's lecture was "An Unbroken Circle: Linking Ancient African Christianity to the African-American Experience."
Fr. Moses described his journey toward Orthodoxy, which he explained was heavily influenced by the study of his own family’s history. Fr. Moses concluded by expressing his desire to spread the Orthodox Faith to the black communities of the United States.
Fr. Moses is the pastor of Theotokos “Unexpected Joy” Orthodox Church in Ash Grove, Missouri.

The St. Tikhon's Community extends its thanks to Fr. Moses for taking the time to deliver this insightful presentation.
