Lecture by Fr John Behr “The Life-Giving Spirit” on 26 May


On Saturday the 26th of May Fr John Behr once again will give a lecture in the church of the Orthodox Parish of Amersfoort.

Those who have already experienced an evening with father John, will know that the word “lecture” is not an apt description. Intellectually challenging, interactive with the audience, not without humor, this lecture about the Life-giving Spirit will give much food for contemplation.

Fr John about his lecture: “This weekend we will be celebrating the Feast of Pentecost, the bestowal of the Life-giving Spirit as the culmination and continuation of Christ’s Paschal work. How is the bestowal of the Spirit related to the mystery of Pascha and to our own lives? Why do we primarily speak of the Spirit as the one who gives life and how is this life lived?”


Where: Orthodoxe Parochie Amersfoort, Matthias Withoosstraat 34, 3812 ST, Amersfoort

When: Saturday, the 25th of May 2018, doors open at 16:30, starts at 17:00, ends around 18:30.

For whom: Anyone interested in Orthodox theology and the Church Fathers.
