Why Orthodoxy Loves a Liberal Mind
Rev. Dr. John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Seminary
What has Jerusalem to do with Athens? The Church with (Plato’s) Academy? Much in every way, for the first neither renders obsolete the second, nor does it obliterate it as so much pagan nonsense, but shows and augments its virtue, fitting it for the task of redeeming both it and the whole world. On March 11, 2016 come hear the very Rev. Dr. John Behr address the question of the need for an Orthodox presence and appropriation of the Academy, and why we need this.
Vesper service will begin at 6:30, followed by the lecture at 7:30. Immediately following the lecture, please join us for a wine and cheese reception.
