Zoom Lecture Series: Origen of Alexandria
Join Fr. Bill Stafford Tuesday, August 18 at 5:00 p.m., for a lecture on Origen, a voice from early Christian days whom some considered a heretic. Fr. Bill writes: “Origen of Alexandria was the Christian thinker who did more than anyone else to form the Eastern Orthodox approach to Christian faith and life—and is viewed by them officially as a heretic. Origen lived in the third century AD, and headed up the great church school at Alexandria in Egypt, fleeing to Palestine when his bishop attacked him. He commented on virtually every book of the Bible, especially dealing with the hard parts that he thought just must not be taken literally. He loved Jesus and his Church, and he loved thinking very advanced speculative thoughts (which sometimes got him in trouble). Come join in following the career of this brilliant, passionate, and faithful teacher.
