Permanent Conference of Ukrainian Orthodox Bishops Beyond the Borders of Ukraine: Reflection on St. Philip’s Fast

This post was originally published on this site

Simply put, our goal during this Pre-Nativity Fast is to mature in Christ, to attain to spiritual quality and excellence in our profession of the Orthodox Christian Faith, to invite Christ Jesus into our very being, to proclaim to an increasingly nominal and apathetic Christian society that, which it would rather not hear:  “I bring you tidings of great joy…a Savior is born…He is Christ the Lord!” and He can be found in the hearts and homes of those who proclaim Him by their willingness to “let our light so shine before men, that they might see our good works and give glory to our Father Who is in Heaven” [Matthew 5:16].

7 November 2017 • On-campus

Many Orthodox Christians are familiar with decrees, proclamations, canons, and doctrines promulgated by the major Ecumenical Councils of the Church and other local synods. But they rarely wonder: “Who drafted the texts I’m reading? What method did the drafter use?”

After this reflection, the class will become hands-on and seminarians will collaborate on drafting a message from a mock council.
