On Earth as it is in Heaven: Interviews, Part 2

In this video, Fr. Christopher Metropulos interviews Fr. Christopher Bender, the chair of the steering committee for the Fellowship of the Transfiguration Conference. Fr. Bender explains the meaning of this year’s title “On Earth as it is in Heaven,” and how Orthodox theology should lead to the “greening of the Orthodox parish.”

Fr. Christopher Metropulos interviews two speakers about an Orthodox view of ecology at the conference. Martha (a student at St. Vladimir’s) addressed the conference on the topic of student activism, describing her role in the St. Herman Society for Orthodox Ecology.  Danielle (a student at Holy Cross) addressed the conference on the topic of incorporating Orthodoxy into the understanding of the Human Person and our relationship to Creation.

Dr. James Hansen, a retired official from NASA, is a noted climatologist. He delivered one of the keynote addresses at the conference. Fr. Christopher Metropulos interviews him at the conference on issues such as global warming and the effect of fossil fuels.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
