- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

Harvard Club of Serbia

On 29 June 2004 more than a dozen Harvard alumni and past fellows met on a riverboat (splav!) on the Danube river in Belgrade, Serbia to establish the Harvard Club of Serbia as a non-profit civic association. Since then we have organized a number of social, educational and recruiting events.

Our members are graduates from Harvard College, the schools of Arts and Sciences, Business, Design, Divinity, Education, JFK School of Government, Law, Medicine and Public Health, Harvard Executive programmes and current Serbian students at Harvard University. They include entrepreuners, leaders in civil society, diplomats, government ministers, journalists, educators and artists.

Bridges to Serbia

SupportSerbia.com is run by a Serbian-American family living in Honolulu and Washington, D.C. After visiting Serbia for the first time in 2011, we wanted to share what we had seen in Serbia with other Serbian-Americans and the world!

What we saw:

  • a heritage we are proud of;
  • a vibrant culture;
  • beautiful people with warm hearts;
  • and ways in which we and other Serbian-Americans can easily help people living in that country.

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.
