Welcome to the Orthodox Church of St. Stephen the Protomartyr!
Cheesefair week is here. There are some changes to the normal schedule, on Tuesday the Theology Discussion group that normally meets in Oviedo will be meeting at Fr. Daniel's house in Longwood. Also, the Wednesday night vespers and adult education class will also be canceled and instead Fr. Daniel will be attending an OCF meeting at 7:30pm at UCF. For details and directions to either event please contact Fr. Daniel.
Tomorrow, our Theology discussion group will meet at Barnies in Oviedo at 6:30. If you enjoy reading theology, you should join us. Last week I gave an introduction to a new field field of Biblical scholarship called "Temple Theology." This week Mark will lead a discussion on arguments for the existence of God. Mark and I plan to offer a Sunday School class on apologetics in the near future. Let me know if there are any burning questions you would like to discuss in the class.
This Wednesday we will continue our study of Fr. Alexander Schmemann's essay "The Spiritual Problem." This is all about the problems of being an Orthodox christian and parish in the modern world.
Ladies, This Sunday plan to stay after Liturgy for Mat. Marcy's baby shower.
March 9 we will host Fr. John Behr for a pre-Lenten retreat. He will speak on "Becoming Human." This is a great opportunity to hear from one of our best Orthodox theologians. Do not miss it. Our meatfare picnic will follow the retreat
