Raising Saints Registration
Saturday 9AM
Equipping the Saints: from the most ancient teachings to modern pedagogy, Storytelling remains the most valuable tool in an instructor's kit. Together we'll explore how stories teach to a child's heart instead of just their intellect, and discuss ways to bring the stories of the Holy Scriptures and the lives of the Saints to life in the classroom, so that we can transmit the living faith to our students.

Saturday 1PM
Creating an Orthodox Rhythm at home: The Orthodox faith is a lived faith-- what does that mean? We'll look at practical ways to bring an Orthodox rhythm to your family life, by developing a family prayer routine, by learning the Scriptures together and allowing them to work in or lives, and by fasting and feasting with the calendar.

Sunday after Divine Liturgy
Orthodoxy & the Meaning of Crisis: In many ways, we think of our culture as coming to a crisis point. What is the meaning of crisis, what is its role in the spiritual life-- and how can moments of cultural or national crisis become opportunities to encounter Jesus Christ?
