For the first time, this year at Annunciation during Great Lent we are holding a “Lenten Lecture Series” on each Friday evening in the month of March. Beforehand we pray the Akathist to the Mother of God, which is traditional in Orthodox practice, followed up by a talk from an invited guest speaker.
On Friday, March 23, His Grace, Bishop Paul – Bishop of Chicago and the OCA’s Diocese of the Midwest – gave a talk entitled, “Are We a Church, or The Church?”. Below is the recording of the talk and a link to download for easier listening on your own.
