We are beginning to read a new book, "
The Religion of the Apostles" by Fr Stephen De Young. 
This is one of the best sellers among Orthodox books at the moment. The book "presents the Orthodox Christian Church of today as a continuation of the religious life of the apostles, which in turn was a continuation of the life of the people of God since the beginning of creation."
We meet via Google Meet; therefore, reply to this email to get the meeting link.

You I invoke, O God, in Whom and from Whom and through Whom all things are true. God, the Good and Fair, in Whom and from Whom and through Whom all things are good and fair.
- Saint Augustine

Stewardship Calling podcast is hosted by Bill Marianes where he explores such questions as:
Why are you here and why does your parish exist?
Explore God’s personal calling for you and your parish. Learn the latest research, best practices and creative ideas to improve the operations of your parish and the quality of your life.

In the episode I am sharing with you today, Bill talks about learning "how to inspire the youth and emerging adults in your communities and families to find great meaning and purpose in serving others through their churches from inspirational millennials doing just that. Hear from the amazing Alyssa and Niko Kyritsis who are each doing great things to help bring people closer to Christ and each other."
