Study Group - Our normal meeting time is Wednesdays following the 6PM Vespers.  Classes will resume Wednesday, June 11th after Vespers. This Study Group will be a survey of the entire Bible, with an emphasis on the Old Testament.  The purpose is to understand the Old Testament as the Scriptures of the Orthodox Church and as the necessary context for the understanding of the New Testament. We will use two texts:

Lawrence R. Farley. The Christian Old Testament: Looking at the Hebrew Scriptures
through Christian Eyes. Chesterton, IN: Conciliar Press, 2012.
The Story: The Bible as One Continuing Story of God and His People. Grand Rapids:
Zondervan, 2011.

Thought of the Day
"We must strengthen ourselves by truly realizing that the God of the Universe is the God who dwells within us. When we begin to enter into our interior universe, we will find how close we are to our healing. God has given us all things; we need only remove from our inner selves what is not of God." -- His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH

Saint of the Day
The translation of the relics of the Proto-martyr Stephen the Archdeacon; Venerable Photeini; New-martyr Theodore; Blessed Basil the fool-for-Christ, wonder-worker of Moscow

The Feast of the Dormition is preceded by a two-week fast, referred to as the Dormition Fast. From August 1 to August 14 (inclusive) we fast from red meat, poultry, meat products, dairy products (eggs and milk products), fish, oil, and wine. The Dormition Fast is a stricter fast than either the Nativity Fast (Advent) or the Apostles' Fast, with only wine and oil (but no fish) allowed on weekends. As with the other Fasts of the Church year, there is a Great Feast that falls during the Fast; in this case, the Transfiguration (August 6), on which fish, wine and oil are allowed.

Most Holy Theotokos, Save Us!
