Please join us on Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm for our new Bible Study on the beautiful Old Testament Books of Psalms, Proverbs, and the Wisdom of Solomon. We will be exploring how these books are used liturgically by our Holy Church and also how these books can apply to our day-to-day life as Christians. If you cannot come in person, you may phone in to the Bible Study! According to Fr. Thomas Hopko of blessed memory, “Virtually all states of man’s soul before God are found expressed in the psalms: praising, thanking, blessing, rejoicing, petitioning, repenting, lamenting, questioning and even complaining. . . In the Orthodox Church all of the psalms are understood as having their deepest and most genuine spiritual meaning in terms of Christ and His mission of eternal salvation. . . . The proverbs are short sayings concerning the proper conduct of wise and righteous persons. They are read in their entirety at the weekday Vesper services of the Church during Great Lent. Selections from the Proverbs [and the Wisdom of Solomon] are also read at the vigils of a number of feasts of the Church since for Christians the Wisdom of God is personified and embodied in Christ.”
