The VII international conference on the legacy of Metropolitan Anthony of Sourozh «What does it mean to be a Christian in everyday life?»
Date: September, 15th, 2019. Time: 16:00 – 17:30.
Chair: Aleksandra Bazulina — Historian, School Teacher
Organizer: Vera Erokhina
The theme of the round table is what it means for us, Christians of the XXI century, to belong to a Church, what it means for us to be involved in a voluntary activity. What inspires us? And the opposite situation – why aren’t we involved in voluntary work?
How do we understand the nature of the Church and the vocation of a person in the context of it? In metropolitan Anthony’s parish it was a privilege and a joy to serve God and other people. What do we know about metropolitan Anthony’s views on the Church and on church ministry?
Why is there an opinion that the Church is a place for self-realisation for those who fail in their secular jobs? Is voluntary work for the Church (choir singing, cleaning, teaching, etc) more Christian than secular jobs? Is there a difference between secular and church ministry? How do we understand liturgy after liturgy?
