In July, I was honored to be a presenter at the OCA’s seventh annual Parish Development Forum. Sponsored by the Archdiocese of Western Pennsylvania, Diocese of the Midwest, and my own Bulgarian Diocese, this year’s forum was an on-line event, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Forum theme was “The Orthodox Parish: Charting a Course in Challenging Times.” I gave a talk on “Re-establishing Community and Fellowship.” In addition to the video on my YouTube channel, here’s a link to my session slides.
