Finding Balance in the Contemporary

How do we balance preserving the ethnic heritage of our churches with really providing a nurturing Christian community for the broader society and younger generations? Fr. Anthony Messeh of St. Timothy and St. Athanasius Church in Arlington, VA, www.stsachurch.org, is on the show this week to talk about this question. Fr. Anthony holds a contemporary service each week, and his parish boasts an enormous array of ministries for every demographic.

We’ll also speak with Brigid Strait about the Ortho Gals blog. Orthogals.com is a blog site started by three Orthodox Christian singles who felt the book on dating they wanted to read had not been written yet, and in it’s place they launched a meaningful dialogue with other singles, through this blog, who were searching for answers to many of the same questions. Also, to learn more about the Labor Day weekend event in Atlanta, visit www.regonline.com/cwww2013.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, we thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.

Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Orthodox Christian Network Executive Director
