Final Read-Along Lesson, Podcasts, Summer Reading Program, School Winner

Dear Friends,

We complete our Read-Along in The Gospel According to Matthew: A Torah of the Church with lesson 21, "The Death of Judas." Download the lesson from the Read-Along tab at the top of this website. Remember, you can always access any lesson for this book from that tab. If you weren't able to follow along with us during the year, why not read this book and do the lessons as a summer activity? You can earn 1 credit for each lesson completed.

A new Read-Along will begin in the Fall.

And here are some new podcasts for you:

Preparing Hearts and Minds: Fr. David Smith explores St. John Chrysostom's first sermon in his series on St. John's gospel. In this sermon, the greatest preacher of Orthodoxy prepares the hearts and minds of his listeners - those who heard him deliver the sermon and those of us today - to receive the message of St. John the Evangelist, and to open ourselves to the gospel's life-changing message. Listen now.

Abba Macarios: Noted scholar Fr. John McGuckin speaks on Abba Anthony (Saint Anthony the Great). Listen now.

What is Marriage?: There’s so much talk today about what qualifies as a marriage. Today, we’ll talk with Father Brendan Pelphrey about our Orthodox understanding of what makes a marriage, what the purpose of a marriage is, and what makes a marriage successful in the eyes of Christ. But first, let’s talk about creating a successful relationship with our in-laws! Licensed clinical psychologist Dr. Randa Karadsheh Anderson offers some very practical suggestions about family boundaries. Listen now.

You can receive 1 credit for each podcast you listen to. Simply listen, fill out the podcast worksheet, and submit your finished work to else10(at)gmail(d0t)com.

Finally, don't forget our Summer Reading Program! Read three books, receive 10 credits. Learn more here. And download the summer reading list here.

And now a drumroll for this year's credit winner: STACI! Congrats! You'll be receiving a beautiful icon for your hard work.
