SYOSSET, NY [OCA Communications] — The Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Christian Education will hold a one-day conference for educators, parents, and the general faithful on understanding and teaching Scripture in an authentically Orthodox manner on Saturday, June 30, 2007.
Titled “In the Beginning,” the conference will be held at Holy Trinity Church, Parma, OH.
“One of the most important things we can do for those who work with our young people is to help them understand and teach Scripture in an authentically Orthodox way,” said Mrs. Valerie Zahirsky, department co-chair. “With that in mind, the conference will offer theological reflection, workshops with hands-on advice and sharing of experiences, question-and-answer sessions, and displays of all kinds of materials.”
The Very Rev. Theodore Bobosh, rector of Saint Paul the Apostle Church, Dayton, OH, will be the featured speaker.
A focused workshop will also be presented by the OCA Department of Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry.
