Dr. Christopher Veniamin, Professor of Patristics at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in South Canaan PA and President of Mount Thabor Publishing, has been graciously invited to address college students from three Coptic Orthodox parishes in the vicinity of St. Mary & St. John The Beloved Coptic Orthodox Church in Pickering ON, on Saturday, February 15, 2014. Thanks to Fr. Daniel Bessada, the day will begin with the Divine Liturgy, which will be followed by two presentations (with time for Questions), the first in the morning, the second in the afternoon.
Based on Prof. Veniamin’s recently published book, The Orthodox Understanding of Salvation, the first presentation will be, “The Orthodox Understanding of Salvation: ‘Theosis’ in St. Silouan the Athonite and Elder Sophrony of Essex”; and the second, “The Orthodox Interpretation of Holy Scripture: St. Gregory Palamas and the Key to Understanding the Bible.”
