|Beyond the Veil: The Apocalypse in the Orthodox Church|
Who wrote the book of Revelation, when, and why? What are we to make of its strange symbols, such as 666 or the mark of the beast? Why don’t we read from Revelation in the services of the Orthodox Church? Can we know when the end of the world will come? Are we living in the end times? Why don’t Orthodox Christians set dates for the end of the world but others do? Will Christ return to rule over the earth for 1,000 years? What about “the rapture?” Will Christ return to rule over the earth for 1,000 years? If Revelation is prophecy, does it have any message for us today? In this presentation, we will explore the Apocalypse of St. John in history, in the tradition of the Orthodox Church and we will examine some famous passages from the book together.

“So once again, I, the LORD All-Powerful, tell you, "See that justice is done and be kind and merciful to one another! Don't mistreat widows or orphans or foreigners or anyone who is poor, and stop making plans to hurt each other." Zechariah 7:9-10 CEV
The International Christian Recovery Coalition is launching a new worldwide movement to establish Christian Recovery Resource Centers beginning January 1, 2011. These centers will provide access for Christians in recovery and those who want God’s help in overcoming alcoholism, drug addiction, at-risk behavior, and life-controlling problems. Full details on how to join and participate can be found on www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com.
We are especially hoping to see one or more centers established in the San Diego area.

After all, Brethren, the whole end of Theology is love. It seems hard to realize that that is so, but so it is. If your theology does not make you more loving, it has not Christianized you and to that extent is not a Christian theology... All ecclesiasticism and all doctrinalizing are in order to form character, and the soul of character is love. Preach the truth in love, and for the development of love. ... Nathaniel J. Burton (1822-1887)
