Divine Liturgy for the Beheading of the Forerunner

Remember, we will celebrate the Divine Liturgy Saturday, August 29 at 9:00, with orthros to precede it beginning at 7:45.  The commemoration tomorrow is for the Beheading of the Forerunner, John the Baptist.  In Christ’s own words, “ . . . among those born of women there has not risen one greater than John the Baptist.”  Let us come worship our God and remember his faithful servant!  Remember as well that tomorrow is a fast day with katalysis for wine and oil.

The Eastern Church in Colonial America

Nicholas Chapman, an Englishman and Orthodox Christian, will be coming to Memphis Sept 17-20 for the conference of the Association of Eastern Christian History and Culture at Rhodes College.  While attending, he will present a paper on Orthodoxy in Colonial America, and he hopes to worship with us on Sunday, Sept 20.  During coffee hour he will give brief presentation on his research which I think all of us will find quite interesting. Don’t miss it.
