Orthodox Christian Worship

March 27, 2012

Below is a link to a great lecture given by Fr Thomas Hopko, on ancient christian worship. Fr Thomas explains how Christians have been coming together in worship, from the earliest times in the Book of Acts, until the present day. One of the things that struck me the most, was the point that worship, prayers, breaking of the Bread and Apostolic Doctrine are never things we make up, they are what we enter in to, as already being, because they are ordained by God. This isn’t the kind of magical thinking that people have of Christian Faith, but is the ancient understanding the Church has had of her worship from the beginning.
I am subscribed to Father Thomas Hopko Lectures podcast though iTunes and Ancient Faith Radio. That is how I came to hear the lecture. Hear is the link to the podcast on the AFR website. Enjoy, it’s a wonderful teaching. It’s about and hour and a half.
