Christian Struggles Then and Now

Christian Struggles Then and Now


On Harmony of Thunder, Fr. David tells the story of two Christians who have stood up in the public sphere for what they believed – one in the courts and one in the media. Would St. Basil the Great have done the same thing? Would he approve of Christians demanding respect in the public sphere? By all means! Listen to Harmony of Thunder to hear how similar our struggles today are with those of Christians in the fourth century.
