Engaging Orthodoxy: The Unchanging Gospel in an Ever-Changing Culture

Orthodoxy is on the cusp of a major theological renaissance in the 21st century. Join North Park University in the inaugural event in this speaker’s series, designed to explore Orthodox theology as a vital religious force in American life and thought.

In his lecture, Metropolitan Kallistos Ware will present an Eastern Orthodox understanding of the Gospel, and offer practical guidance on how local churches may keep it clear and central for each generation. Three respondents will offer thoughts and reflections, moderated by Dr. Bradley Nassif. The event will include a time for audience Q&A.

Fr. John Kochurov (also spelled Kochuroff) was priest at Holy Trinity just before and after the turn of the 20th century. He was instrumental in the construction of the Holy Trinity Cathedral building, and served as a missionary not just to the Chicago area but to Orthodox Christians in many far-flung locales in the United States. In 1907, he returned to Russia, and, in October 1917, was the first priest murdered in the Bolshevik Revolution.
