Discovering the Riches of Orthodox Spirituality

June 17-20, 1999

Gilmary Conference Center, Coraopolis, PA

Orthodox spirituality already influences us more than we may realize. For example, icons, the "Jesus prayer," one of the Eucharistic prayers from The Book of Common Prayer, and many of our hymns and prayers come to us from the Eastern tradition. Additionally, many of the early church fathers whose writings are now so influential came from what became the Orthodox Church.

Orthodox spirituality has a rich heritage which we began to explore at this year's conference. As the 1998 conference on Celtic Christianity, we focused both on the tradition itself and on its potential to nurture and deepen our own spiritual lives.
