A Guidebook to a Program of Adult Education in the Greek Orthodox Church.
Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of North and South America, New York, NY. Dept. of Laity.
In this booklet, information and guidelines are presented on educational needs and educational planning among Greek Orthodox adults in the United States. The challenge to update and upgrade religious adult education is briefly discussed in its historical context. Next come suggestions for planning archdiocese laity programs involving young people under 18, young adults (including college students and choir members), and adults over 30. Finally, possibilities for program planning at the local, regional, and archdiocesan levels are suggested, with attention to such activities and resources as parish libraries and bulletins, religion classes for lay members and new converts, cultural and fellowship programs, conferences and retreats, groups for older adults, and newsletters and audiovisual materials. Included are a church conference organizational chart, a sample one day conference schedule, and a list of publications and materials. (ly)
