Services are Livestreamed via our Facebook page: St. John Chrysostom Greek Orthodox Nashville, TN
Following the Hierarchical and Metropolitan civil guidelines, at the present time, Service participation is Online only.
*When the telephone became a means of communicating, many people shunned it as an aberration (deviation from truth, moral rectitude; abnormal). However, now that we have accepted it, we often feel very connected with another person by talking 'on the phone' when we are not able to be physically present with them. This does not mean that in the future, we can refrain from coming to church when we are able. But rather, that under the present conditions, we can indeed very much feel connected in the participation of the Divine Services. 'Come and see'... and join us!
Christ is Risen!
OUR 'LITTLE CHURCH'
Our home is the 'Little Church'. If you are able to watch the services, light your candles, light some incense, listen to the hymns of the day, and we will be celebrating together. In some homes people dress as they would when they come to Church, and stand or sit in front of their Icons. In this way we invite the Lord to come into our home. During the Paschal 40 Day period, we can sing the Paschal Hymn together. We Greet each other with the Paschal greeting, "Christ is Risen! Truly He is Risen!" As we celebrate the Divine Liturgy, we hold each other in our hearts and prayers, and ask the Lord to be merciful to us and bless us, one and all!
