Introducing Eastern Orthodoxy to Lutherans: recordings of colloquium now available

DETROIT — Recordings of “Faith of Our Fathers: A Colloquium on Orthodoxy for Lutherans,” sponsored by St. Andrew House — Center for Orthodox Christian Studies Sept. 10-11, are now available on compact disc.

The colloquium was the second in an ongoing series sponsored by St. Andrew House to present the basic precepts of Orthodox Christianity to clergy and lay leaders of other Christian faiths.  St. Andrew House conducted its first colloquium, in January, for U.S. Episcopalians and Canadian Anglicans.

The colloquium for Lutherans featured a keynote address by the founder and president of St. Andrew House, Archbishop Nathaniel of Detroit and the Romanian Episcopate of the Orthodox Church in America, and presentations by seven other speakers:

— “The Authority of Scripture” by Reader Christopher Orr

— “Trinitarian Theology” by Father Calinic Berger

— “The Church in Orthodoxy: Scratching the Surface” by Father Gabriel Rochelle
— “The Virgin Mary and the Saints” by Father Gregory Hogg

— “‘Will No One Rid Me of This Troublesome Priest?’ — The Church, Augustinian Anxieties and Lutheran Conclusions” by Deacon Gregory Roeber

— “Orthodox Confessions of Faith” by Father John W. Fenton

— “Justification” by Father Basil Aden

Ancient Faith Radio, the online Orthodox radio station, recorded the archbishop’s address and the presentations.  A set of eight compact discs in standard audio format containing all the recordings may be purchased for $54.95 from the station’s Web site at http://ancientfaithradio.com. The recording may also be listened to on or downloaded from the site in MP3 format.

For further information on the colloquium, visit the Web site of St. Andrew House — Center for Orthodox Christian Studies at http://www.orthodoxdetroit.com.
St. Andrew House was founded in 2001 to promote the Orthodox Christian faith by word and example through formal instruction, worship and good works; to serve the Orthodox clergy and faithful of metropolitan Detroit; and to be a symbol of the unity of the faith.
