Invisible Warfare

Fr. Barnabas Powell will be presenting two talks on Spiritual Warfare at St. Innocent Orthodox Church. Fr. Barnabas brings a fresh perspective on the timeless teachings of traditional Christianity.

We will have light refreshments after the talks and offer tours of our unique church.

Fr. Barnabas Powell was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. His journey to Orthodoxy came as a result of many years searching for a “lifestyle” that would be truly Christian. After years in Evangelical Protestant ministry and serving in Christian media, both radio and television, he launched Faith Encouraged Ministries to use what he learned in sharing faith through media for the Orthodox Faith. Fr. Barnabas is an author, pastor, podcaster, and teacher committed to offering a credible witness of the timeless Orthodox faith for this culture. His daily devotional - Faith Encouraged Daily - reaches over 5000 people a week. His weekly homilies - Faith Encouraged - have been watched over 150,000 times on You Tube. And his twice a month live call in show - Faith Encouraged LIVE - is one of the most popular shows on Ancient Faith Radio.

Upcoming Class Series

It is safe to say that there is no living human being in this world who will not suffer. This suffering can come from within our own souls, our bodies, and in the various calamities that one hears about on the news every night. In modern American, culture suffering is often presented as something to be avoided. At the center of the Christian faith we are given the image of the God/Man Jesus Christ, who suffered and died, despite his innocence. Classic Christianity has a unique perspective and approach to suffering and our human response to suffering. How are we to understand human suffering? How can we find grace in the midst of our own personal sufferings?

On Tuesday, October 15th and Tuesday the 22nd at 7 pm Fr. Theophan Buck will be giving an informal talk on the topic of suffering. Fr. Theophan is the priest and pastor of St. Innocent Orthodox Christian Church. He holds an M.Div. from St. Tikhon’s Theological Seminary and is currently enrolled in a master’s program for pastoral care and counseling.

All are welcome.

There will be light sweets and beverages and following the talks, there will be a church tour for those interested.
