Fall Lecture Series Continues with Lecture on Patristic Reading Groups
The Seminary's Fall Lecture Series continued on October 11 with a talk by Dr. Timothy Becker, entitled "Identity and Knowledge: A Reflection on Leading Reading Groups on the Church Fathers."
 
Dr. Becker, who teaches at the Center for Orthodox Thought and Culture at Eastern University in Philadelphia, discussed his years of experience in leading patristic reading groups in several contexts, including at Eastern University.

"We were impressed with Dr. Becker and his warm, insightful presentation.  He really opened up for us greater possibilities for reading groups as a means for evangelistic outreach as well as spiritual growth," observed Drs. David and Mary Ford.

Dr. Becker described how his groups adopt common spiritual practices (e.g. waking at 2 AM for the Midnight Office on the day of their meeting), and how he encourages open conversation that attends to life application.
