Orthodox Education Day 2007
October 07, 2007 Length: 1:29:00On Saturday, October 6, 2007, St Vladimir's Seminary welcomed hundreds of guests who traveled to the seminary's campus for this year’s Orthodox Education Day. It was a full day of prayer, fellowship, good food, and educational workshops as participants explored this year's theme: "Our Church: Her Mission and Her Future.” One of the highlights of the day was the keynote address by Fr Chad Hatfield, SVS Chancellor and CEO. Fr Chad spoke on the topic of Our Mission Today, challenging his audience to consider the lives of the great Missionary Saints in America’s Orthodox history: St Herman, St Innocent, and St Tikhon – and how they call us to bear witness to the truth of the Gospel today. His address was immediately followed by a panel discussion with representatives of mission work in the Antiochian Archdiocese, Greek Archdiocese and OCA. Fr Chad moderated, taking questions from the floor addressed to Fr Eric Tosi (OCA), Fr Gregory MacGregor (Antiochian Archdiocese) and Fr James Kordaris (Greek Archdiocese).
"I recently came across Ancient Faith Radio by accident, in my search to answer some questions to myself and to defend myself to a friend who was bashing the Orthodox Church. The things that I have learned about Orthodoxy from this site are priceless. It has helped me to grow even closer to the faith and of course to grow even more as a Christian. I cannot thank you enough. I can't get enough of this site. I listen all the time!!!!! All the way from Greece!!!"
