Youth Choir Starting 
27/9/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
We are pleased to announce that Anastasia Klimzo will be heading our Youth Choir at St. Vladimirs this year. We strongly urge parents to involve their children in the Youth Choir. Rehearsals will begin in the coming week. Please reach out to Anastasia in church or via email at info@stvladimiraami.org to arrange for your child to participate in the Youth Choir. This is a wonderful way for your child to learn more about the Divine Services and use the talent that God has given him or her for His glory! The more the children are involved in their faith the more they will persist in their faith so please help facilitate your childs involvement in the Youth Choir!

Michigan Deanery Missionary Choir 
27/9/16, 06:00 AM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
With the blessing of Archbishop Peter the Michigan Deanery is founding a Missionary Choir. The purpose of the Missionary Choir is to bring Orthodox Christianity to those areas in our state where there is no Orthodox Church and to support those smaller parishes that may need a bit of help from time to time (for instance, when the bishop visits for a hierarchal service). The choir aims to hold a concert monthly this academic year in various areas throughout our state, singing both Church Hymns and Folk Songs (and perhaps with even a Folk Dance or two) and we are beginning this October! Please join us in this important missionary effort, which we hope will flower in the founding of new missions in our deanery! For more information please contact the Dean of the Michigan Deanery, Priest Gregory Joyce: ogrisha@yahoo.com.

Scripture Readings for the Coming Week 
25/9/16, 06:00 PM
Posted by Fr. Gregory
"This is the cause of all evils: the ignorance of the Scriptures. We go into battle without arms, and how ought we to come off safe?" -St. John Chrysostom, Homily IX on Colossians.

In order to help increase the general knowledge of scripture in our parish family we present here for your edification the scripture readings for the coming week. At least one Gospel Reading and one Epistle reading are assigned for each day of the year (although during Great Lent the readings are from the Old Testament). Hearing or reading only those readings appointed for Sunday merely scratches the surface of the great spiritual wealth that the scriptures provide us. Some of the readings are easily understandable others are less so. As Orthodox Christians we do not make private interpretation of scripture, but rather consult the fathers of the Church for their explanations to aid us in our understanding. Those wishing to have access to such explanations are asked to contact Fr. Gregory or inquire in the kiosk for further reading in this regard. Bibles may also be acquired in the kiosk.

Monday: Galatians 2:11-16 & Mark 5:24-34
Tuesday: Galatians 2:21-3:7 & Mark 6:1-7
Wednesday: Galatians 3:15-22 & Mark 6:7-13
Thursday: Galatians 3:23-4:5 & Mark 6:30-45
Friday: Galatians 4:8-21 & Mark 6:45-53
Saturday: I Corinthians 4:17-5:5 & Matthew 24:1-13

Please find below several very nice articles on how to read the scripture from an Orthodox point of view.

By St. Justin (Popovich):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/bible_how.aspx

By Bishop Kalistos (Ware):

http://www.orthodoxinfo.com/phronema/ware_howto.aspx

This short article explains to us not just HOW to read the scriptures, but also what our goal should be in reading the scriptures. A short read and well worth it:

http://www.chrysostompress.org/reading_scripture.html

As noted in the article above we need God's help and blessing to read and understand the scriptures correctly. What better way to entreat God's help in this regard than through prayer? Please find the prayer before reading the scriptures here:
