Our MTh scholars
I must congratulate the three British Orthodox Readers (James Anthony Kelly, Antony Paul Holland,and Daniel Malyon) from our Southampton Congregation who are currently studying for their M.Th. in Orthodox Studies at the University of Winchester, and who recently attended the Annual Conference of the Orthodox Theological Research Forum held at Winchester University.
Their commitment to enhancing their understanding of the Orthodox Faith through formal academic study (as sometimes burdensome and inevitably expensive as that will be) and their enthusiastic participation in scholarly conferences is important for them, for the congregations they serve and for the British Orthodox Church.
Let us keep them in our prayers and offer to them such support as we can!
We need scholars just as we need pastors (preferably we need those who are both!).
