Wanted to tell you about a talk and worship service demonstration I am giving at the end of this month. Would be delighted if some of you local to Boston could make it. See information below and on the attached flier.
“Orthodox Christian Worship in Five Senses”
Come take a tour of the sensory-rich Eastern Orthodox worship service that enlightens the mind through the heart. Engage with a 2000 year-old Christian tradition that has been called America’s best kept secret.

Worship ♦ Education ♦ Engagement
Presented by the Institute for Christian Unity
A bi-monthly gathering promoting Christian community and coming together around worship, education, and engagement (WEE) of issues critical to the life and flourishing of the Church. The core principles of the WEE Forum are two. First, to embrace that which divides us, believing, paradoxically, that the seeds of unity are to be found precisely in that which has historically separated us, and, second, to gather in an attitude of grace, remembering that, whatever grace we can show to someone whose traditions or beliefs are different from our own, God has shown us infinitely more. The WEE Forum schedule: 7pm – 7:30pm: Worship (led or designed by the evening’s host), 7:30pm – 8:00pm: Education (presented by evening’s host on a topic of interest), 8:00pm – 8:30pm: Engagement (Q & A from the audience).
