The first St. Sophia Seminary Library Book Club meeting took place this past Thursday, May 18th. The Book Club meeting took place at Metropolitan John Library of St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Theological Seminary at the Metropolia Center in Somerset, New Jersey. The Metropolia Center in New Jersey serves as the spiritual hub for the entire Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA and is conveniently located near several of our UOC of USA parishes in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, as well as many non-UOC parishes. This central location was a perfect spot for Orthodox and even non-Orthodox to gather to learn more about the faith and have a spiritually uplifting evening.
The book of the month of May was “Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy”, written by Rev. Andrew S. Damick. Those gathered last Thursday were privileged to listen to the author himself deliver an enlightening talk about his book, Orthodoxy and Heterodoxy. After the talk, the group broke for coffee and refreshments and had the opportunity to have the author sign the book. After a short break, the meeting continued with a period of questions for the author and a lively discussion.
The Book Club will meet every third Thursday of the month from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at St. Sophia Seminary Library. The next meetings will take place on: June 15 (Book: “Mediations on the Divine Liturgy” by N. Gogol), and July 20 (Book: “UOC of USA Prayer Book” & discussion on Dogmatic Theology for the Rest of Us/Guest Speaker: Fr. Anthony Perkins)
