Теслини дани целог јула

Tоком целог јула одржаће се манифестација „Тесла дани 2016”, поводом 160 година од рођења славног проналазача и научника Николе Тесле, у оквиру културно-туристичке руте „Путевима Тесле”. Манифестацију организује Кластер путева културе, који окупља више од 40 институција културе, туристичких организација и агенције привредника и шест факултета у Србији, Словенији и Хрватској.

Док је претходних година Теслин рођендан обележаван скромно, ове године, управо због јубилеја, славље ће трајати читав месец и биће обележен бројним изложбама, експериментима, предавањима. „Тесла дане” обележиће пројекције филмова о старим хидроелектранама Електропривреде Србије и филма који су заједно урадили уметници из Србије и Њујорка, који ће истовремено бити приказан у Београду на Аеродрому „Никола Тесла”, у једној галерији у Њујорку и у Народном музеју у Крагујевцу, чиме ће Тесла симболично повезати Србију и Америку.

На сам Теслин рођендан, 10. јула, у Музеју Николе Тесле биће изведен посебан експеримент, а ЕПС ће организовати Тесла собу у којој ће посетиоци моћи да се упознају с Теслиним патентима, решавају задатке и освајају награде. Културна рута „Путевима Тесле” обухвата Музеј Николе Тесле који чува целокупну Теслину заоставштину, затим Београд из угла Николе Тесле, који је научник посетио на само један дан 1892. године, и десет малих електрана ЕПС-а.

Archimandrite Sebastian Dabovich
SERBIAN ORTHODOX APOSTLE TO AMERICA
by Hieromonk Damascene (Christensen)
St. Herman of Alaska Monastery, Platina, California

 

 

1. An Apostle of Universal Significance

Born during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, Archimandrite Sebastian Dabovich has the distinction of being the first person born in the United States of America to be ordained as an Orthodox priest,[1] and also the first native-born American to be tonsured as an Orthodox monk. His greatest distinction, however, lies in the tremendous apostolic, pastoral, and literary work that he accomplished during the forty-eight years of his priestly ministry. Known as the "Father of Serbian Orthodoxy in America,"[2] he was responsible for the founding of the first Serbian churches in the NewWorld. This, however, was only one part of his life's work, for he tirelessly and zealously sought to spread the Orthodox Faith to all peoples, wherever he was called. He was an Orthodox apostle of universal significance.

The Church at Prayer

by Archimandrite Aimilianos of Simonopetra

Publisher’s note

Many readers of the addresses of Elder Aimilianos, which have been published in the five-volume series, rchimandrite Aimilianos, Spiritual Instructions and Discourses (Ormylia, 1998-2003), have frequently expressed the wish for an abridged and more accessible form of his teaching. In response, we are happy to inaugurate a new series of publications incorporating key texts from the above-mentioned collection. Other considerations have also contributed o this new project, such as the selection of specific texts which address important, contemporary questions; the need for a smaller, more reader-friendly publication format; and the necessity for editing certain passages in need of clarification, without however altering their basic meaning.

Above all, the works collected in this volume reflect the importance which the Elder consistently attached to prayer, spirituality, community life, worship, and liturgy. Thus the experientially based works "On Prayer", and "The Prayer of the Holy Mountain", which deal primarily with the Prayer of the Heart, appear first, followed by the summary addresses on "The Divine Liturgy", and "Our Church Attendance". These are in turn followed by the more socially oriented discourses on "Our Relations with Our Neighbor", and "Marriage: The Great Sacrament". Finally, the present volume closes with the sermons on "Spiritual Reading" and "The Spiritual Life", which in a simple and yet compelling manner set forth the conditions for "ascending to heaven on the wings of the Spirit".

It is our hope that The Church at Prayer will meet the purpose for which it is issued and will serve as a ready aid and support for those who desire God and eternal life in Him.
