From the Office of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
PROGRAM BEGINS THIS WEEK.
We are pleased to announce our next Let's Talk Live Program. Starting Thursday, October 22nd, at 7:00 pm EST with special guests Bishop Maxim & Fr. John Chryssavgis. Fr. Christopher Metropulos, OCN Executive Director, will be offering a one hour interactive video session on Zoom with limited availability for two-way discussion.
A new document, entitled For the Life of the World: Toward an Orthodox Social Ethos, was recently endorsed by the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. The culmination of work over two years by a special commission of theologians (clergy and laity, men and women), appointed by His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in 2017, For the Life of the World takes on modern-day challenges from the rich Orthodox spiritual tradition and offers ways to navigate and respond to racism, poverty, injustice, human rights, reproductive technology, bioethics, climate change, and others.
We will also be live-streamed on our Facebook page. Join us and thousands online for prayers and discussion. Families are welcome, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. If you would like to attend, please register HERE to receive sign-in instructions.
