Expectations in Relationships

Expectations can be a burden.  How can we keep our expectations in relationships reasonable and manageable?  Listen as Fr. Chris speaks with Fr. George Morelli, Assistant Pastor at St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in San Diego, CA, about the difference between demanding expectations and preferential expectation, and where free will fits into the equation.  As mentioned in the program, you can read the writings of Fr. Morelli here.

And keep listening as Fr. Chris and Dr. Bruce Beck discuss the Parable of the Good Samaritan.  Dr. Beck is the Assistant Professor of New Testament at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and Director of the Pappas Patristic Institute.  Listen as they discuss a modern application to this well-known parable where mercy is key, not the action alone.
