Dimitris Karavasilis was born and grew up in Imvros, Turkey. He attended the Turkish primary school, while at the same time secretly learning the basic Greek language. Forced to emigrate, he settled in Greece. He went on to study both Theology and Greek Literature at the University of Athens, where he also attended post-graduate classes in the field of Comparative Paedagogics. He has been a radio producer at the local ecclesiastical radio station of the Metropolis of Pereus for 23 years. He still teaches religion and ethics at the High School level.
The fact that Jesus was dealing with all the people regardless of their social status, does not leave us the chance to do otherwise. We ought to equally behave to anyone whoever he is and represents. Acceptance is the key to unlock the brotherhood of humanity.
Το γεγονός οτι ο Χριστός διαλέγεται με όλο τον τότε περιθωριακό κόσμο, δεν μας αφήνει καμιά δικαιολογία ώστε κι εμείς σήμερα να κάνουμε διακρίσεις και να συνδιαλεγόμαστε μόνο με όσους κρίνουμε οτι αξίζει τον κόπο, η με όσους μοιράζονται την ίδια ιδεολογία κλπ. Ο Χριστός ήρθε για όλους, κι εμείς πρέπει να είμαστε έτοιμοι να προσφέρουμε σε όλους!
True Life, Greek is a weekly Greek program that strives to enlighten our daily lives with the light of Scripture and wisdom of the Church fathers. The show mainly deals with issues that are designed to highlight the crucial redemptive effect of faith in God and our meaningful participation in the life and worship in the Orthodox Christian Church, and our relationship with God Himself. This is a ministry for those who understand Greek.
