Seminar on ‘Sexual Purity and Healthy Relationships: A Christian Orthodox Perspective for the 21st Century’

Fr Johann Barak
Fathers Johann Barak and Joshua Tuchs (these are SL avatar names), who in RL are two Eastern Orthodox priests in USA, together with Presbytera Anna Hirschel (again, SL name–she is also in RL Eastern Orthodox and based in USA) will be holding a 60-90 minute seminar at our SIM in Second Life this Thursday, 1 May 2008, at 1:00 PM PDT/SLT = 9 PM BST (GMT+1) about ‘Sexual Purity and Healthy Relationships: A Christian Orthodox Perspective for the 21st Century’.

Our three speakers will hold an open discussion along the lines of this video:
http://realserver.goarch.org/ram/en/sexual_pur.ram – we will be showing a short segment of it in-world at the start of the seminar. They will be responding live (in text and voice) to your questions in-world. Fr Johann Barak, Fr Joshua Tuchs, and Presbytera Anna Hirschel believe that Orthodox Christianity has a strong and very important and practical message for the whole world, especially these days with the very recent announcement of the US CDC that 1 in every 4 American teenage girls has a sexually-transmitted infection (HPV) that can lead later in life to cervical cancer
(http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/7290088.stm).

Join us on Thursday, 1 May 2008, at 1:00 PM PDT/SLT = 9 PM BST (GMT+1) at
