Men's Theological Annual Report January 2016
Prepared by Theo Poulos
Each month, the Men’s Theological Forum (MTF) convenes to share a meal and consider how our faith intersects with our world, work and families. In 2015, we covered topics such as Fatherhood, the Orthodox Mystical Tradition, the Nous and Miracles. An important part of the MTF is our ministry to one another. Thus, in a space of confidentiality, we strive to “bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). To prepare for our discussions, we read a short essay or watch a movie and then as a group reflect on focus questions to draw out the meaning of the text or film. We have a core group of 6-8 men from the parish who attend the forum on a regular basis. We expect to kick-off 2016 with a discussion of Mindfulness and how we as Orthodox Christian men might understand it. New participants are always welcome.
