Dear brothers and sisters,

I have been working with Father Vahan Hovhanessian, the primate of the Armenian Orthodox Church in the UK, and we have organised an Orthodox Education Day for 9th October, 2010.

We have also formed a ministry called Orthodox Education, which has a new website here - http://www.orthodoxeducation.org.

Let me urge all those Orthodox within the London area to consider whether or not they should attend this interesting and exciting day of study. Those wishing to attend should send me an email with their name and address so that they can be registered. Send a registration request to: fatherpeter@britishorthodox.org


Oriental Orthodox Education Day

The Council of Oriental Orthodox Churches (COOC) in the United Kingdom is happy to announce an all day seminar titled: How Our Fathers Read the Bible, on Saturday, the 9th of October, 2010.

The faithful of the Armenian, Coptic, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Malankara Indian and Syrian Orthodox Churches and the affiliated churches are cordially invited to attend the educational day which will take place at the Nevart Gulbenkian Hall of the St. Sarkis Armenian Orthodox Church in Kensington.

The Orthodox Education Day will start with an Armenian morning service  of prayer at 10:00am in St Sarkis Church followed by a continental breakfast at 10:15am.

The program, starting at 10:25am with welcoming remarks and announcement, will include the following speakers:

His Grace Bishop Angaelos of the Coptic Orthodox Church:
“What the Orthodox Fathers say about the Bible”

His Grace Abba Seraphim of the British Orthodox Church:
"The Septuagint in the Oriental Orthodox Traditions"

The Very Revd Fr. Vahan Hovhanessian of the Armenian Orthodox Church:
“The Bible as the source of spirituality in the writing of the Armenian Church Fathers”

Revd Fr. Peter Farrington of the British Orthodox Church:
“The Bible as the source of Orthodox Christology.”

Each speaker will make a presentation of about 20 minutes, and then there will be a space of about 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Lunch will be served at noon at the conclusion of the second talk.

Registration for attendees will be £5.00 and payable on the day, which will help defray the cost of lunch and handouts. Those planning to attend should send an email to Father Peter with their name and contact details.

For further information or to register in advance please e-mail: fatherpeter@britishorthodox.org

It sounds wonderful.  Do you know if there are plans to record it and put it on the internet?  Or perhaps the text of the lectures may be compiled into a book?

We are hoping that it will be streamed on the internet and then available online. I think we will also publish the texts in a booklet and online.

I'm bumping this since it is happening tomorrow.  If you live in that part of the world, go and let the rest of us know how it was.   Smiley  I'm looking forward to any online videos that come out of this.
