With the blessing of the First Hierarch of the Russian Church Abroad, His Eminence Hilarion, Metropolitan of Eastern America & New York, the Diocesan Media Office has published an English-language version of the lecture by Protopresbyter Valery Lukianov on homiletics entitled – "The Fountain of Living Water."
The lecture was recorded on March 6, 2012 in the parish library of St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Lakewood, NJ, as part of the Pastoral Resources Program (PRP), which has as its goal providing similar lectures and seminars to the clergy and faithful of the whole Church Abroad.
In his lecture, Fr. Valery – the senior-most cleric of the Russian Church Abroad ‒ drawing on authoritative sources and his own 49 years of experience as a pastor, answered a range of questions relating to the preparation and successful delivery of a sermon. After the lecture, Fr. Valery answered listeners’ questions, including ones submitted via Facebook. "The Fountain of Living Water" is a valuable resource for clergymen hoping to better learn the art of homiletics.
The lecture was translated into English by Reader Gregory Levitsky, who also voiced the English version of the film.
With God’s help, and thanks to the support of the Fund for Assistance to ROCOR, the Diocesan Media Office hopes to publish many similar videos in the coming months.
The lecture and discussion that followed can be viewed in English in their entirety below.http://eadiocese.org/News/2012/may/homiletics.en.htm
