St. Barbara Orthodox Church in Southwest Ft. Worth is pleased to offer this Fall an introductory adult and teen series on prayer. Archbishop Anthony Bloom’s celebrated work, “Beginning to Pray,” will be used as a guide. Copies will be available for purchase, and a reading of the text will be helpful for participants, but not essential.
Bloom, a former WWII Surgeon in the French army, and later an Orthodox hierarch, became known internationally for his talks and writings on prayer and the Christian life. His works concerning Christian prayer transcend denominational lines, approaching the subject from the viewpoint of a person seeking answers to life’s ultimate questions about existence itself, and God’s activity in one’s life, specifically as it relates to prayer and a personal relationship with the Creator.
From the publisher of Beginning to Pray: “The book has established itself as a modern spiritual classic. Hailed both by Catholics and Protestants, it was written by an Orthodox Archbishop for people who had never prayed before and has been read and loved by persons at all levels of spiritual development.”
Over a six week period classes at St. Barbara’s will aim at fostering an understanding of the basic principles of prayer found in “Beginning to Pray,” and as practiced by Christians for 2000 years.
