Fr. John Behr will be at St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Church (195 E Windsor Rd, North Vancouver, BC V7N 1J9) on Sunday, September 17th, and will be giving a talk on encountering Christ entitled, “The Great Mystery: We Shall All Be Changed” at 3:30pm.
There is no charge for attending, nor any obligation to sign up beforehand, but it would be helpful, if you are planning to attend, if you would fill out this brief form so we have some idea of how many people might be coming: https://forms.gle/32WfUQywv7yb7fMM6
On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”
St. John of Shanghai Orthodox Church is moving to North Vancouver. Our new home is the beautiful Anglican church dedicated to Saint Martin, located at 195 East Windsor Road, North Vancouver, BC. We continue to serve as the only fully English-language Orthodox Church in the greater Vancouver area, and we will be continuing to serve Divine Liturgy on Sundays, beginning with the Hours at 9:00am, and Great Vespers on Saturdays at 6:00pm, with weekly book studies (currently conducted via Zoom – e-mail email@example.com for login details) on Wednesdays at 6:30pm any week when there is not a Great Feast being celebrated.
Our first service at the new location will be held this Saturday, October 1st (Great Vespers at 6:00pm), with services being held at that location thenceforward.
We are grateful to our very generous landlord of the past fifteen years, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, and now also to our new landlord, the Anglican Diocese of New Westminster. We are thankful to God that he has provided us with a place where we can worship Him!
An argument could be made that I’m actually arguing for a more thoroughly binary understanding of gender here, just increasing the complexity of the application of that binary in orders of magnitude measured in powers of two.
