What are the Gladsome Light Dialogues?

February 25th, 2008 by Fr. Vasile

This particular name was chosen in order to transmit two things: first these meeting are dialogues and not monologues; your opinions questions experiences are welcome in our setting so bring your life with you and share it . Second Gladsome Light or Fos Ilaron is the evening hymn we sing during Vespers. The dialogues take place in the evening so there you go!

The Gladsome Light also stands for the bright light of the evening star that shines in the darkness of night symbolizing the promise the hope of a Savior in the darkness of sin that was covering the world before the coming of Christ. In a similar fashion these dialogues are meant to support us in our daily effort to live a true Christian life. Well try to bring into discussion real life topics that we face every day and discuss them from a Christian Orthodox perspective. In a world that more and more is against the idea of God these dialogues are meant to give us hope that we can still live a Christian life despite the odds of a rejecting society.

The Gladsome Light Dialogues take place on every Wednesday after the Paraklesis Service. The weekly discussion topics will be posted on the Blog pages but also in Forerunner and the Sunday Bulletin. I am looking forward to see all of you participating and making this program alive!
