      Dr. Bruce Foltz to Present Ecology Lecture at St. Vladimir�s Seminary
      Sept. 1

      YONKERS, NY [SVOTS Communications]

      Dr. Bruce Foltz, an Orthodox Christian and Professor of Philosophy at
      Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, FL, will offer a free and public
      lecture, �The Truth of Nature,� at St. Vladimir�s Orthodox Theological
      Seminary <http://www.svots.edu/> here at 7:00 p.m. on September 1, 2013.

      The talk will contrast today�s post�modern assumptions regarding the
      environment with patristic and historic Christian understandings of what
      it means to care for God�s creation.

      The lecture is being sponsored by Saint Herman�s Society for Orthodox
      Ecology (a seminarian-led group established in 2010 to address issues of
      ecological stewardship) and the Orthodox Fellowship of Transfiguration.

      Preceding the lecture, at 6:00 p.m., members of Saint Herman�s Society
      will plant a new tree on the seminary grounds to beautify the campus,
      which will be followed by an �Akathist in Praise of God�s Creation� in
      Three Hierarch�s Chapel. Society members selected the date for the tree
      planting, Akathist, and lecture to coincide with the date designated by
      His All-Holiness, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, as
      a day dedicated to environmental protection.

      The lecture will be held in the Metropolitan Philip Auditorium of the
      John G. Rangos Family Foundation Building and will be followed by a
      question and answer session and a public reception.
