School Of All
By Mark Bach

The School of the Seventy provides many benefits for all. By recommending and incentivizing educational pursuits, the School of the Seventy increases each person’s abilities to grow in the Orthodox faith. Each member of the School takes his or her own time focusing on particular aspects of Orthodoxy and enjoys the fruits of their efforts—fruits that provide enjoyment and payback for a lifetime. I became a member of the School to aid in my preparation for chrismation. Reading many recommended books gives me the knowledge to understand certain aspects of Orthodoxy, and more importantly, to ask specific questions to confirm my desire to become Orthodox. My efforts began when I read “The Orthodox Way” and “The Orthodox Church,” both by Timothy Ware (Bishop KALLISTOS). The School assisted in combining teachings of these books with lessons from the Liturgy, leading to my desire to learn more and more. Continuing my pursuits led me to read “The Ladder of the Beatitudes” by Jim Forest and “The Kingdom of God: The Sermon on the Mount” by Bishop Dmitri (Royster). Reading these books not only clarifies understanding of Orthodoxy, but also introduces me to many notable people who have written many other books to be explored in the future. Expanding knowledge through the School of the Seventy never ends!

(Note: On February 22, Mark received a certificate of achievement for his efforts. Each time a student earns 25 credits’ worth of reading and/ or activities, he earns a certificate. Mark’s certificate was the first one awarded by the School. Mark will be chrismated on Holy Saturday this year.)
