a couple of studies
Join our online Book Study group, which meets once a week, Wednesday or Friday at 8pm.
Right now we are reading a book by Rod Dreher "The Benedict Option, a strategy for Christians in a post-Christian nation." A very timely book, if you were to ask a certain priest, for everything that' going on in the society right now.

You can also listen to a two-part interview on a new Orthodox podcast, "Orthodox Engagement," with Rod Dreher, part 1 and part 2.
Tuesdays, starting with an Akathist service at 7pm.
The Bible Study is available both for in-person attendance and online.
