Despite being Super Bowl Sunday, Fr. Evan has a lively show with calls, chat room, pre-recorded questions, and email questions. Included topics were economia regarding the Eucharistic fast, spouses who have no interest in Orthodoxy, and Hades.
Fr. Evan had several questions tonight related to the differences between Orthodox and Roman Catholic understanding of the "keys to the kingdom." Please forgive the poor audio from Fr. Evan's studio. It appears it is time to replace a microphone cable!
Fr. Evan asks John Maddex to join him at the beginning of the show to reminisce about the beginnings of Orthodoxy Live 5 years ago. He then takes calls from listeners. The first one on prayer followed by an inquirer trying to choose between Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism.
Steve Chsristoforou joins Fr. Evan tonight as guest co-host as they tackle several questions together including salvation outside the Church and forgiveness. Send Fr. Evan a note of appreciation as it was 5 years ago tonight that Orthodoxy Live started!
The author of Parenting Toward the Kingdom, Dr. Philip Mamalakis joins Fr. Evan as co-host tackling parenting questions—especially for parents of teens. They also talk about a new resource for parents and teen workers from Faithtree resources.
The hour flew by as Fr. Evan and Fr. Stephen address questions about the "myth of progress" as it relates to Fr. Tom Hopko's 55 maxims, systematic theology and the Orthodox faith, styles of worship in the broader Christian realm, and much more.
How are we saved through the Eucharist? Why don't the saints depicted in icons ever smile? What holy sites can I visit on my trip west? Was the Holy Spirit active before Pentecost? Those and other questions were presented to Fr. Evan and his guest co-host Fr. Nicholas Louh.
A lively program with many calls asking questions about transitioning to Orthodoxy from a Southern Baptist background, the differences between Eastern Rite Catholic and Eastern Orthodox, eschatology, death, and more!
Fr. Seraphim joins Fr. Evan to tackle questions and also talks about the founding of the first Orthodox monastery in the Celtic Isles of Scotland in a thousand years. Hear Fr. Seraphim on his own podcast, too: Through a Monk's Eyes.
Fr. Evan welcomes Dr. Philip Mamalakis for this special extended version of Orthodoxy Live. Many have found Dr. Philip's new book, Parenting Toward the Kingdom, to be a very helpful resource in raising their children. The two of them discuss child rearing, family life, and the joys and struggles of parenting. With far more questions than they had time to get to, look for a followup program down the road.
A fascinating hour with Fr. Anthony Perkins who is the rector of St. Mary Protection of the Holy Theotokos parish in Allentown, PA. He is also the Director of Vocations, Associate Academic Dean, and a professor at St. Sophia Ukrainian Orthodox Seminary. He and Fr. Evan talk about Orthodoxy and military service and take a call from an explorer into Orthodoxy who spends part of her time in Italy.
