Peace and Grace to you all,
This month issue is a about our feeling of abandonment by God, the times in our lives when we feel that God is so far away from us. In this issue we answer some of the questions behind this spiritual condition through the writings of three of our great church fathers, Evagrius of Ponticus, Isaac the Syrian, and Pope Shenouda III. We hope you like it.
Also attached is an invitation to a Coptic night at Macquarie University on the 26th of October. See attachment for detail.
For those interested in enrolling in the online Masters of Art in Coptic Studies, for next year (starting in March 2012) this is a good time to do so. Also make sure you checkout all the other study option.
