Listing Of Events
If you're like most of us, you've been going to liturgy for years, but have no idea why we do what we do, why the priest does what he does, why the choir is changing certain hymns, why some kids can serve in some parts of the church and not others, and why things look different in your jurisdiction than in others. Now's your chance to ask your questions! Dr. Teva Regule, a scholar of liturgy, will be fielding questions on Sunday, September 25. (Orthodox women only.)
Just in time for the new academic year!
Four top scholars from Brown University, State University of New York at Albany, Purdue University, and Princeton Theological Seminary, will gather to talk with a rising scholar from Fordham University about Orthodox intellectual life in the academy and how they practice it.
This is a rare chance to see women scholars of this caliber in conversation with one another--don't miss it!
Dr. Teva Regule, a liturgist and a scholar, will give this webinar—exploring ways to integrate girls (and boys) in our liturgical celebration. Her presentation will be based on her conviction that everyone should be actively participating in our liturgical celebration and learning by DOING. And, that we should open up more ways for women/girls as well as men/boys to serve.
(Caveat: Axia asks a donation to attend the webinar as we want people to be serious about doing so.)
Please help to spread the word to those who you think would be interested.
Everyone welcome. $12
Join four Orthodox chaplains, moderator Clio Pavlantos and panelists Tania Bouteneff, Atsede Elegba, and Angela Rios--all chaplains with end-of-life experience--for a rich and deep discussion that will help us learn to be there for friends, family, and community members when they need us most. (For Orthodox women only.)
Sunday, May 15 at 6pm Eastern/ 5pm Central on Zoom
Developing a self-care practice is vital for maintaining our spiritual, physical, and emotional well-being, yet women struggle to prioritize self-care. Let Axia’s Craft ‘n’ Sip help build your self-care routine. Join Kristina Baktis, LCAT, ATR-BC, ATCS, board-certified art therapist, for this creative and restorative program. Kristina will create a fun and supportive atmosphere for you to engage in creative techniques that emphasize relaxation and rejuvenation. No artistic experience is necessary. Grab a beverage of your choice, make some art, or just enjoy the fellowship. Each meeting will focus on a different theme.
