The Annual Fall Lecture Series began this Tuesday, Oct. 7 2014 with a talk by V. Rev. Stephen Freeman, pastor of St. Anne’s Orthodox Church in Oak Ridge, TN, and author of the book Every Where Present: Christianity in a One-Storey Universe. He is best known for his podcast Glory to God: Thoughts and Reflections on Orthodox Theology and Life available from Ancient Faith Radio , and his award winning weblog Glory to God for All Things.
Fr. Stephen’s lecture entitled The One-Storey Heart: Christianity with a Single Mind offered a profoundly meaningful and visible connection between heartfelt and tearful confession related to our inner places of shame, and “uniting ourselves to Christ” as repeated in the reception of Catechumens portion of the Baptism service. By making this connection he drew out for all present the actual steps involved in actualizing one’s baptism that we are called to be about all our lives as Orthodox Christians.
The next lecture in our series will be next Tuesday, Oct. 14 where we will hear from Fr. Andrew Damick (STOTS 2007) who will speak on The Transfiguration of Place: An Orthodox Christian Vision of Localism.
The Annual Fall Lecture Series is open to the public and admission is free for alumni of St. Tikhon’s Seminary. Admission for the public is only $10 with a group rate for groups of ten or more for only $100. Drinks and refreshments are provided free of charge.
