Oriental Orthodox Sermons and Lectures
« on: February 10, 2010, 10:38:32 PM »
This is a thread for links to online sermons and lectures by Oriental Orthodox clergy, professors and other knowledgeable persons.  The sermons and lectures may be written, audio, or video.  Written sermons may be copied and pasted, but please also provide links to their sources.

Please do not post bare links.  In other words, a post with a link in it should have some sort of introduction to the link, telling what it is about and who is giving the sermon or lecture.  If the link is to a page with many sermons or lectures, then give some information about the page, such as what church it is from, etc.

Father Vahan is giving a series of lectures on the Badarak in London and the ones which have taken place can be seen and heard here...

The intro starts in Armenian and becomes English quickly.

Peace to all,

I hope that these are helpful and informative. Perhaps the internal links may also be resourceful about the Malankara Orthodox Church of India. I found it very interesting that our Sister Orthodox Church of India has established themselves in Saudia Arabia. Then again, I'm ignorant of any other denomination that may be operating OPENLY in S. Arabia. 

Excuse me if this doesn't fit the topic:

http://www.malankaraorthodox.tv/Video/videos.htm [scroll midway down the page & you'll find English, but you will see the beauty of the Malankara Orthodox Church, India and Her peoples]

http://www.orthodoxchurch.in/ [See video to right of page]

http://www.wotcm.mypodcast.com/ [Self-explanatory]

*Disclaimer: Content of all sermons are not guaranteed scholarly, by 'poster'


Thank you,

They are not up to much, but I have started converting some of my sermons and talks to mp3 format.

I shall be adding them to my local Church site, here...

These first files do include a lecture on the origins of Christianity in the British Isles, which I gave at St Mark's Coptic Orthodox Church, Kensington, and a sermon I preached at the Coptic Orthodox Church in Bromley.

Below is a video link to a lecture I gave titled: "The Incarnation of the Beatitudes: The ‘Saint’ as a Model of Orthodox Life". It is quite 'ecumenical' (sorry if that offends some!  ;D) in that I quote from various Eastern and Oriental Fathers, ancient and modern. The lecture starts at 4:18 on the recording and has some intermissions throughout. I have the complete presentation as a PowerPoint if anyone is interested (which includes the quotes and some diagrams not shown in the video).

Selam everyone :)

Thank you so very much , Reverend Fathers, and all here that are sharing great treasure with us.So beautiful, great edifying wisdom, even the ones I could not understand I got the blessing of hearing the voices of the holy fathers! I thank God for everyone here!
To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
