New Series makes debut on OCA website

[OCA Communications]—“Life in Christ: A Series of Pastoral Reflections” is the title of a new series of timely articles which began today on the web site of the Orthodox Church in America in January 2002.

Edited by the Very Rev. John Breck, the bi-monthly series will offer commentaries and observations by Father Breck and other authors on a wide variety of timely topics. The first two installments offer reflections on life after the September 11 tragedies and on the recent debate surrounding embyronic stem cell research.

“The series, which will appear on the web site on the first and third Fridays of each month, is being offered as a ministry of the OCA Pastoral Life Unit,” according to the Very Rev. John Matusiak, OCA Communications Director. “While each installment will be pastoral in nature, the series is designed to have broad appeal among clergy and laity alike.”

Selected installments will also appear in The Orthodox Church, the official newspaper of the Orthodox Church in America. The articles are available at LIFE IN CHRIST

Father Breck is a former faculty member at Saint Vladimir Orthodox Theological Seminary Crestwood, NY. Currently, he oversees the Saint Silouan Retreat in South Carolina and serves as Chairman of the OCA’s Medical-Ethics Board.
