Jun 2 @ 7:00 pm – Jun 3 @ 9:00 pm
 Clergy in Tennessee - Orthodox Church in America

You are invited to spend two special evenings with Fr. Stephen Freeman.  Thursday evening’s topic will be  “Mind Your Grammar”.  Our culture has a grammar, a way of thinking about things with very important rules. 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. We will look at some very important examples of this as we explore the place of Orthodox grammar in our lives.

Friday evening’s topic is:  “The Mission of the Cross”. This talk takes  us to the most essential things in our faith as well as the one thing needful in our lives.
