"The way of nourishment suggested in The Festive Fast, inspired by the Eucharist, vivifies and nourishes everyone, whether they live as monks in the desert or struggle as ordinary believers within society."

|What is Orthodox Christianity? - A three-part slideshow that answers the question, "What is Orthodox Christianity?" by emphasizing the prayer of the heart, watchfulness, and the Holy Mysteries that set Orthodox Christianity apart from other Christian confessions. Part One: The Teachings of Christ emphasizes what Jesus Christ taught His Apostles and what and where the Church is. Part two: Falling Away from Christ begins a consideration of the spiritual consequences of departure from the Church, first through establishing an historical timeline of the schism and then beginning to consider the prayer of the heart, experience of uncreated light, and the difference between spirit and soul that have been preserved in the Orthodox Church. Part three: The Life in Christ focuses on elements of the spiritual life: baptism, repentance, watchfulness, and Holy Communion. - Created by: Rev. Daniel Mackay, St. John the Wonderworker Serbian Orthodox Church in Eugene, Oregon

Please join us in prayerful support of our Sisters of St. Xenia Skete during the raging fires in the Wildwood area! The fire is 3-1/2 miles away from them! As of today, the town of Wildwood is on mandatory evacuation on the other side of Highway 36 from the Skete. Please keep them in your daily prayers, as they are, together with our Brethren at St. Herman's Monastery, so closely affected by fire and smoke danger!
We jointly pray to the Most Holy Mother of God at the beginning of the Dormition lent, to shelter them and protect them all from adversaries and immediate danger, and to give courage to fire fighters to extinguish the wildfires. Please keep a prayerful stronghold throughout these trying times.
With fraternal love and gratitude,
In Christ, Bishop Maxim
