The Ss. Peter and Paul Men’s Fellowship will read and study the book “Bread & Water, Wine & Oil” this Fall. The parish will have 10 copies for the members of the men’s group to purchase, but if you are interested you can order one for yourself here.
There is also an electronic version available for Kindle, Nook and iOS devices.
“Worry, despair, insecurity, fear of death … these are our daily companions, and even though we attempt to ignore them or try to crowd them out, they are there, waiting for us in our quieter moments. It is precisely where we hurt most that the experience of the Orthodox Church has much to offer. The remedy is not any simple admonitions to fight the good fight, cheer up, or think positively. Rather, the Orthodox method is to change the way we look at the human person (starting with ourselves). Orthodoxy shows us how to be “transformed by the renewing of our mind”-a process that is aided by participation in the traditional ascetic practices and Mysteries of the Church. In this unique and accessable book, the author first explores the role of mystery in the Christian life, then walks the reader through the seven major Mysteries (or sacraments) of the Orthodox Church, showing the way to a richer, fuller life in Christ.”
