BB SATURDAY. OCTOBER 26, 1996 RELIGION THE SAUNA JOURNAL Heaven's windows Icons lead Salman to become Orthodox Christian By GARY DEMUTH The Salina Journal • t was the icons that did it. At 40, Salinan Shelly Hatfield decided to fulfill her dream of becoming an artist -and began a two-year study in Graphic Art in Pennsylvania. She had always been interested in holy icons. After all, she was married to an Episcopal priest. But when she went to an Orthodox retreat center to study paintings of icons, she was not prepared for the spiritual changes that hit her like a thunderbolt. "I found that the icons are not flat, two-dimensional lifeless paintings," Hatfield said. "They inspire and draw you into a deeper communion with God." Hatfield began to think of the icons as "windows to heaven." She said they were a key factor in helping her decide to become an Orthodox Christian. "Windows to Heaven" became the title of an autobiographical essay Hatfield wrote for a book entitled "Our Hearts' True Home," a collection of stories written by women who have entered the Orthodox faith. "These women come from a variety of backgrounds and faiths, from Jewish to Buddhist," Hatfield said. Hatfield is the wife of the Rev Chad Hatfield, pastor of All Saints Orthodox Church, 2818 Scanlan. Rev. Hatfield was the former Dean of Christ Cathedral in Salina but became controversial in the church for preaching against what File photo Shelly Hatfield has written an essay In "Our Hearts True Home," a collection of stories written by women who have entered Orthodox faith. he believed were the false doctrines of the Episcopal Church. "A lot of my husband's formation as a priest came from traditional Orthodox writings," Shelly Hatfield said. "He became the scourge of the liberal Protestant whig of the church that was seeking to rewrite Scripture and throw out tradition." Shelly Hatfield writes in the book that her husband was forced to resign from the church over a false accusation that was canonically illegal. The Hatfields had quietly embraced the principles of Orthodoxy within the Episcopal church, and now they had the chance to openly declare their beliefs. "Orthodoxy is the second largest Christian religion in the world," Shelly Hatfield said. "Orthodox means 'right belief.' They are traditional teachings that are virtually unchanged since the days of Christ. If you visit Jerusalem, this will be the Christian church you'll find. It's the ancient church as it was in its original state." With the help of Orthodox Bishop Basil, Wichita, Rev. Hatfield was ordained an Orthodox priest in January 1994, and the Hatfields founded Mission of All Saints, Salina. Last year, Shelly Hatfield was contacted by Virginia Nieuwsma, who was putting together a book written by Orthodox women. "Virginia felt the book could be an inspiration to others who were searching," Shelly Hatfield said. "She felt there was a need for Orthodox women to be heard, especially those married to men in the clergy." Hatfield said the book also dispels a lot of unfounded myths surrounding Orthodoxy. "It will clarify things for people considering entering the Orthodox church," Hatfield said. "It's not an ethnic thing. There's a big difference between Christian and Jewish Orthodoxy, for example." Hatfield is thankful that she and her husband decided to enter the Orthodox church. "We were in a religion where we had to defend ourselves all the time," Hatfield said. "Now we're in a church that defends us. We feel like we've come home." enrich your spiritual life A TTEND CHURCH Three of a Kind...

Similar marking...all cuddly...identically impelled with a desire to explore the world. Later they will begin to show individuality and respond to the personal} ties of those humans who soon become their world. The human process of growing up has parallels. Only gradually does individuality become evident. The developing child will also be strongly influenced by those closest who, likewise, become his or her world. Our churches and synagogues in their ministry to families build upon this principle. While strengthening family relationships, they help children to grow spiritually at their own pace. Their emphasis on truth and commitment makes the example of grownups more effective, more inspiring. Your children deserve and your family needs God's ministry to YOU.

"This isn't an orthodox issue. This is a Christian issue," Nasr said. "All Christian believers have a moral obligation to protect the living faith in the Holy Land." WORSHIP US! 8th & Iron.
