Fr. Stephen Freeman to speak at St. Mark Church, Rochester Hills, MI June 2-3
ROCHESTER HILLS, MI — Archpriest Stephen Freeman, Rector of Saint Anne Church, Oak Ridge, TN whose weblog Glory to God for All Things has quickly become one of the most widely read Orthodox internet sites, will offer two presentations at Saint Mark Church, 400 West Hamlin Rd., Rochester Hills, MI on Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3, 2016. According to Archpriest Andrew Yavornitzky, host Pastor, both presentations will begin at 7:00 p.m. and are open to the public.
“Mind Your Grammar” is the title of Father Stephen’s Thursday evening presentation. “Our culture has a grammar, a way of thinking about things with very important rules,” says Father Stephen concerning the topic. “Our Orthodox faith also has a grammar. The grammar of our faith and the grammar of our culture are frequently in conflict, often to our peril.” Within this context, Father Stephen will explore “the place of Orthodox grammar in our lives.”
On Friday evening, Father Stephen’s topic will be “The Mission of the Cross,” in which he will explore the most essential aspects of our faith and “the one thing needful” in our lives.
Father Stephen also is author of the book Everywhere Present, published by Conciliar Press.
