The Orthodox Christian Studies Center (OCSC) of Fordham University, in collaboration with the Department of Religious Education (DRE) of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and with the blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros, is pleased to announce the BONUS EDITION of the Speaker Series: Orthodox Scholars Preach. Almost every week until Pentecost, a different Orthodox Scholar will release a new 10-minute video. This Series provides a platform for Orthodox scholars to reflect on the spiritual themes of each Sunday's liturgical calendar while drawing on their expertise.
This week's sermon for the Sunday of the Blind Man is given by Nicholas Denysenko, who serves as Emil and Elfriede Jochum Professor and Chair at Valparaiso University. Denysenko is a graduate of the University of Minnesota (B.S. in Business, 1994), St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary (M.Div., 2000), and The Catholic University of America (Ph.D., 2008). His most recent books are The People’s Faith: The Liturgy of the Faithful in Orthodoxy (2018) and The Orthodox Church in Ukraine: A Century of Separation (2018). He is a deacon of the Orthodox Church in America.
