My wife and I really enjoyed last year’s classes and have signed up for this new series. Check out the first class here.
With The Blessing of His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas a seven-week on-line introductory class on the Orthodox Christian Spiritual Life, Orthodoxy 102, will begin on Monday January 31, 2011. The class, led by Fr. Peter Paproski, will be broadcast live each week from St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Stratford, Connecticut. The class will begin at 7:00 pm (Eastern Standard Time) and will last approximately 60 minutes.
Topics to be discussed will include:
The Nature of the Church, Teachings of the Fathers on the Spiritual Life, Sin and Repentance, Combating the Passions and Training in the Virtues, Orthodox Worship, Faith and Works, Spiritual Life and the World.
Time will allowed at the end of each session for a question and answer period based on questions raised in person or via email or instant messaging. There is no charge for participating, however, those who wish to participate must register on-line to enter the class room and access the broadcast link. Audio recordings of each session will be archived for later study.
The first lecture was held on Monday, January 31st. An archive of that lecture can be seen here.
