Join Us for Orthodox Christian Laity's 34th Annual Program on December 5, 2021
Presentation by Protodeacon Peter Danilchick at 6:00 pm Eastern Time
Followed by a Panel Discussion with George Karcazes, Alexei Krindatch and Dr. Gayle Woloschak
All of us yearn for that unity that Jesus prayed for: "Father, that they may be one as we are, that the world may know that You have sent me." (John 17:21) Sometimes, despite all our hopes, that dream seems unattainable. But Jesus encourages us: "The things that I do you shall do – and greater things than these shall you do” (John 14:12). And what exactly can these things be? What is possible for each one of us?
Protodeacon Peter will challenge us with the fact that we are all, every one of us, called to be servant leaders, in service to God, His Church, and His people. He will review the work of the Assembly of Bishops in fostering church unity. He will offer practical ways for us to become partners in recent efforts towards creating unity on the grass-roots parish level. He will help us to "dare and do great things" in bringing about the blessed unity of the Church that we all desire.
