Our Wednesday evening adult classes are always based on a select book. In the class, we will cover a section of the book with a structured presentation. It is encouraged that participants prepare for each class by reading in the text. However, this is not required. In addition to studying the specific topic at hand, each class also has an open format which encourages and receives a wide variety of questions and other input from the participants. this format allows us to drift into other topics related and not so related to the main text.
Our current topic for our Adult Study is everyday examples of the Orthodox Christian life. Our book for this study:
Everyday Saints and Other Stories by Archimandrite Tikhon Shevkunov
From the author:
“ In this book I want to tell you about this beautiful new world of mine, where we live by laws completely different from those in “normal” worldly life—a world of light and love, full of wondrous discoveries, hope, happiness, trials and triumphs, where even our defeats acquire profound significance: a world in which, above all, we can always sense powerful manifestations of divine strength and comfort. ”

He is the Abbot of the Sretensky Monastery in Moscow, and the Executive Secretary of the Patriarchal Cultural Council of the Moscow Patriarchate.
