Starting May 11, Fr Alex will be reading Beginning to Pray, by Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, each Tuesday and Thursday evening at 7pm. Please check the Church Calendar for any scheduling changes. (https://orthodoxfl.com/calendar/)
This book has established itself as a modern spiritual classic for Orthodox as well as other Christians. It is written by an Orthodox Archbishop for people who have never prayed before and has been read and loved by persons at all levels of spiritual development.
About the Author: Anthony Bloom, the son of a Russian diplomat, became a physician, monk and archbishop of the Russian Orthodox Church in Great Britain – earning the respect and affection of countless people worldwide because of his deep humanity and tireless witness to the Gospel. Although he died in 2003 at the age of 89, he continues to offer guidance in the spiritual life through his writings.
We will have a short discussion at the end of each evening’s reading and finish around 8pm.
