Why Orthodoxy? Conference 2015
On the weekend of the 2nd-4th October 2015, we gathered together in the Coptic Centre to discuss our Orthodox faith and common questions we are faced with regarding it. Many youth delivered talks based on H.H. Pope Shenouda’s Comparative Theology, which were followed by Question & Answer sessions.
The talks were very enlightening and a number of topics were addressed such as baptism, the eucharist, fasting, our view on St Mary, the intercession of the saints and rituals. I learnt a lot from the talks and they confirmed my belief in the depth and richness of Orthodoxy, which has been preserved from the Early Church Fathers and from the Word of God. I’m grateful that God, by His grace, gave us these mysteries within our Church to reach a greater intimacy with Him. I’m sure we all left understanding why we do what we do, that these practices within Orthodoxy that we addressed are not an end to themselves but are a means to live life with Him, in Him and through Him so we can journey to live heaven on earth.
We hope that you join us next time 🙂
