Dr. David Ford, Professor of Church History at St. Tikhon’s, spoke in the evening of October 24, 2018, at the OCA Christ the Savior Church in Ballston Spa, NY, north of Albany. The priest there is Fr. Matthew Markewich, who graduated from St. Tikhon’s Seminary in 2011.
Dr. David spoke about the life and importance of St. John Chrysostom, and shared a large number of quotations from the homilies of this great Saint. The quotations are just a small portion of many quotes by St. John which Dr. David has gathered for his current literary project called Sing to Your Soul: A Festival of Wisdom by St. John Chrysostom for the Christian Life, to be published by St. Tikhon’s Monastery Press.
