We will focus on the life of the early Church, and augment the text with readings from contemporary writers and early Church Fathers, as well as historical work from modern scholarship. Everyone is welcome! No prerequisites! This should be a great way both to study the Scriptures, as well as build community. Catechumens and inquirers are very welcome.</span></p> St. Herman of Alaska Orthodox Church http://sthermanorthodox.org/news_170907_2.html
