Online Book Study Offered During Great Lent
ONLINE LENTEN BOOK STUDY FORUM – 2012 LENTEN SEASON
The Orthodox Book Study Forum, now in its third year, was started as a way to provide supplemental adult education programs to parishes. Participants throughout the Metropolis read the same book during Great Lent and interact with one another online. The book club is centered around private forum discussions led and moderated by Konstantine Salmas (MDiv.), who is the Director of Education and Youth at the Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Belmont, CA. The next Lenten Book Club is scheduled for March 1 through May 1, 2012.
The book to be read is:
The Monk of Mount Athos: Staretz Silouan, 1866-1938
by Archimandrite Sophrony.
It is published by Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Press and available online through various distributors (Amazon, etc.) including Saint Vladimir’s Seminary Bookstore.
Online registration will open Monday, February 20 through a link available on the Metropolis main website (www.sanfran.goarch.org) and also through the link at www.sfseminars.net.
Mark your calendar and register on February 20, and make plans now to order the book so you have it in time for 2012 Lenten season!
