Soul Trek: Fighting Klingons

Fighting Klingons. That's the topic of conversation this Tuesday at FOS (Forum on Orthodox Christianity), where the summer series is contemplating Soul Trek: Cultivating Your Spirital Life, "To Boldly Go Where God Is Leading." FOS meets at 7:00 PM in the ballroom at Holy Trinity, located at 337 E. 74th St.

The FOS Summer Series promises exciting voyages into the universe of spiritual development. Sacrifice, loyalty, honor, and friendship are some of the topics for which the Star Trek TV and movie series is noted. Who are we and what is the purpose of our existence? Who or what determines our future? How do we decide what direction our lives should take? These are the fundamental issues of the latest Star Trek movie. But they are also the silent questions that determine our spiritual lives as well. Join the crew of FOS as we embark on our summer spiritual trek!

It was really interesting hearing how the Greek words need to be translated to carefully -- ie, that there were two different versions of swords and that that made a difference.
