“Biblical Meditation

     and the Gospel of St. John”

     St. Michael’s Orthodox Church

     1182 Ashland St., Greensburg PA

          Monday, November 4

            6:30 PM —Gather (coffee)

7:00 PM—Presentation

8:00 PM —Q & A

 

Our presenter, Fr. Herman Acker, will guide our consideration of the approach to Scripture explicitly taught in Psalm 1 and apply it to the Gospel of John and, by extension, to all of Scripture. We will be concerned with how this Scriptural teaching is meant to impact and influence our lives in these tumultuous and trying times in which we are living.

Fr. Herman was born in Albany, New York. After becoming a Christian as a teenager, he attended the Northeast School of Biblical Studies, where his love of the Scriptures was born. He then attended Nyack College, where he met his wife of 34 years, Kh. Vera, and received his B.A. in Biblical Studies. He continued on to Biblical Theological Seminary, where he received an M.A. and M.Div., focusing on the Biblical languages. He furthered his studies at St. Vladimir’s Seminary, where he received a Th.M. degree in 1995.  In 1998 he was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by Metropolitan PHILIP of blessed memory, to serve at St. Philip Church in Souderton, PA. In 2001, Fr. Herman began teaching at Eastern University, where he taught Biblical Studies until 2016. In 2008, he received his D.Min. degree in Eastern Christian Studies from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, through the Antiochian House of Studies. In October 2016, Fr. Herman was ordained to the Holy Priesthood and serves at St. Andrew Church in Lewes, Delaware. Fr. Herman and Kh. Vera have two grown sons, Simeon and Ephrem.
